A three-time Premiership winner with 11 State of Origin shields and two World Cups, Smith played 430 NRL games, 42 Origins for Queensland and 56 test matches for Australia.
“Cam has won everything in the game, but also has exemplary leadership skills off-field gravitas and enormous pulling power. If I’m setting up a new team I’d make him the captain-coach, simple as that.”
– Matthew Johns, Commentator
“He takes a lot of pride in his all-round performance and one of those aspects is his leadership. He’s a great captain and a great leader. The accolades he receives are very fitting for the person he is”.
– Kevin Walters , Brisbane Broncos Head Coach
“I’ve said publicly and in commentary a few times, I think he’s (Smith) the best I’ve ever seen. He plays the game differently, like he’s watching from 20 metres above. He’s the most humble champion I’ve ever met – a really good fella – a salt of the earth sort of guy. I just love that he loves the game of rugby league so much.”
– Andrew Johns, Rugby League Immortal
