Cameron Smith will surpass Darren Lockyer's record of 355 matches played when he runs out onto the field for the Melbourne Storm on Saturday afternoon against the Parramatta Eels.
But why stop there?
Could Smith be the first player to crack 400 games in the NRL? And do it all for a single club?

Smith says he has never felt better and with only one more year to run on his current contract with Storm, he has hinted that another deal isn't off the cards.
“To be honest, I haven’t felt so good physically and mentally in my whole career,” Smith said.
‘‘I believe I can keep going. I know there is always the risk of going one year too long, but at this stage, I wouldn’t rule out signing another deal.
“I’ve seen guys where you can tell their head is not in the game anymore and they’re just turning up to get their pay at the end of the month. That won’t be me.”
Great news for Queensland and Melbourne Storm fans, not so good news for NSW and the rest of the NRL!
The journey of a legend 🙌
