Canterbury hardman James Graham has reserved special praise for Cameron Smith following The Storm skipper 350th NRL match on the weekend.

Smith has indicated he intends to play on in 2018 and has 400 NRL games as a future milestone he’d like to achieve.

Graham (pictured) says regardless of how much preparation teams do to nullify Smiths influence, the Qld and Australian captain is always way ahead of the opposition, with his ability to read the play second to none.
