Cameron Smith is likely to be a notch closer to the NRL's all-time point-scoring record after playing the Sydney Roosters on Friday night.
The Melbourne skipper is expected to become just the second player behind Canterbury great Hazem El Masri, to score 2300 career points during the Adelaide Oval clash.
He's currently three points shy of the mark with El Masri's record of 2418 very much within reach should he extend his career into an 18th season in 2019.
The former Queensland and Australian captain and future Immortal has already scored 112 points this season (one try, 54 goals) and El Masri's record is quickly coming into focus.
"It's getting a bit boring really the amount of records Cameron is breaking these days, you sort of lose track of them," Smith's Storm teammate Ryan Hoffman said.
"He's one-of-a-kind player and he can do it all - he can play the game, he scores the points, kicks the goals. It's all going to be written into the folklore of Cameron Smith, arguably the best player the game has ever seen."
Asked would he like to see Smith play on and eclipse El Masri's record, Hoffman said: "100 per cent. I love watching him play regardless of whether I'm playing with him or watching from the stands.
"Cameron Smith has earned the right to make whatever decision he wants and I'm sure he's going to make the right decision because you're a long time retired."
The 35-year-old already owns a host of rugby league records, including most NRL appearances with 371, but should he stay fit and play on, he'll next year become the first player to pass 400 games.
He also boasts the most State of Origin appearances (42) and victories (26) as well most NRL goals (1061).
As well, he sits second for most Australian appearances with 56, only behind former representative teammate Darren Lockyer (59).
"I've said it every year I think since I've started - I enjoy playing the best players in my position and he's one of the best players in the game," Smith's long-time rival and Roosters captain Jake Friend said.
"One of the best players of all time, I suppose. It's awesome. It's a challenge and those sort of games you enjoy as a player."
