Cam Smith and Mal Meninga were a winning duo as captain and coach for Australia and Queensland

Melbourne Storm captain Cameron Smith has signed a two-year deal ahead of his 19th National Rugby League season, in which he should pass 400 appearances.

Smith, 35, has played 384 first-grade matches since his Storm debut against Canterbury Bulldogs in April 2002.

As skipper he has won two Premierships, as well as two World Cups with Australia and 11 State of Origin series with his home state of Queensland.

“I’m very happy to be continuing my career with the club,” Smith said.
