Leading NRL for points and games - Cameron Smith in Opta numbers

Melbourne Storm great Cameron Smith broke the NRL points record on Friday in the latest chapter of his sensational career.

The Storm captain kicked three goals in the 18-12 victory against North Queensland Cowboys to move onto 2422 premiership points for his career.

This latest landmark was just the latest record Smith has taken, though. With the help of Opta numbers, we look at his career as a whole.


42 - Smith holds the record for the most State of Origin games played. He has won the series 11 times with Queensland.

43 - The Storm star's NRL tries. He has crossed for at least one in every season in which he has played at least five games.

58 - Smith has scored 58 points in Origin matches. Johnathan Thurston holds that record on 220.

201 - Last season was Smith's best campaign for points in the NRL. He is on 36 for this season.

389 - The record for games played in the NRL. Smith is set to become the first player to 400 appearances later this season.

1123 - Smith is the only player to have kicked more than 1000 goals in premiership history. The retired Jason Taylor is second on 942.

2422 - Surpassing Hazem El Masri's 2418, Smith has now scored more premiership points than any other player.
