Smith becomes highest scorer in NRL history


//

Melbourne Storm talisman Cameron Smith has leapfrogged Hazem El Masri to become the NRL’s highest ever point-scorer in his side’s 18-12 victory over the Cowboys on Friday night.

The historic moment came in the 49th minute when the skipper stepped up to bury a penalty to draw the Storm level at 8-8 whereon the NRL leaders continued their comeback to hand the Cowboys their fourth loss of the season.

The 35-year-old was joined by his children on field following the celebration in a heartfelt moment shared by the capacity crowd at 1300SMILES Stadium.

“I had a moment there thinking ‘please don’t miss this’, I couldn’t put this bloody thing off any longer,” Smith said following the match.

“It was nice to see it go through the sticks, but I actually at that time I felt that we had a fair bit of momentum over the Cowboy and I actually wanted to run the ball, I hesitated a bit for moment there to take the two. I thought we were a good opportunity to take them n a get a four pointer.

“But I think the big man upstairs he’s a bit conservative so we took it and it’s just nice to break it.

“It’s a special moment, it’s hard to take in while you’re playing…but it’s quite a humbling for me to be now the highest point scorer in the history of our game, it’s quite surreal.

“Going past the legend Hazem El Masri who is just a magician with the boot, being up the top of that table with guys like Andrew johns, it’s quite surreal. It’s very humbling and it’s quite a special night.”

MORE TO COME.
