Cameron Smith unsure of future

Saturday, March 03, 2018

AUSTRALIAN rugby league all-time great Smith is unsure of his playing future

Cameron Smith insists he's undecided whether he will play on beyond the end of 2018 but is conscious of not going "a season too long".

The Melbourne, Queensland and Australian captain is off contract at the end of this season but is likely to become the first player to break the 400-game barrier should he play on in 2019.

The Storm skipper achieved everything in the game last season, winning a Telstra Premiership, Holden State of Origin series and World Cup on the way to being crowned the Golden Boot winner.

However, he doesn't want to reach a point where he is no longer able to maintain the incredible standard he has maintained throughout a decorated career.

"I have always thought I would never stay too long," Smith said at the NRL season launch in Sydney on Thursday.

"I don't not want to go a season too long, not play well and everyone say you should have got out. I would rather finish while I am still playing strong."
