CAMERON Smith has just completed arguably the most successful year by an athlete in any sport this year, but he may just be getting started.

Smith will enjoy a well-deserved break after captaining Australia to World Cup victory over England on Saturday night.

The 34-year-old has one year remaining on his Melbourne Storm contract, but don’t expect his illustrious career to be drawing to a close any time soon.

“It is the last year of his contract (in 2018), but the club is extremely keen to extend his deal beyond the end of next year,” Storm football director Frank Ponissi said.

“He’s indicated that as well through his management and himself.

“There’s certainly no urgency to do that given he played his first game of the year in Hobart back in February and there he is still playing in the first week of December.

The Bureau of Meteorology shouldn't have called the weekend's big wet a '10/10' weather event, Victoria's Emergency Commissioner says.

'I'm not saying the bureau has got it wrong, but '10/10' was overused,' Craig Lapsley told ABC Radio on Monday.

'I think that set a bar that was right up there.'

The Mole: Melbourne Storm winger Sisa Waqa alleged gambling ... - Wide World of Sports

WHERE did the money former Storm star Sisa Waqa conned out of trusting Melbourne fans go?

WWOS has been told the missing money - revealed in an exclusive story on Nine’s A Current Affair last night - went straight into poker machines to fuel Waqa’s gambling addiction, and the supporters are unlikely to ever see it again.

“He had a bad problem with the pokies,” a Storm source told WWOS.

“We tried to talk to him and get him counselling, but he didn’t want to know.”

Waqa is accused of taking $12,000 dollars from struggling student Adrian Paul and another $1200 dollars from gym owner Kieran Atkin.

Both men admit they were somewhat star-struck when they met the man who helped their team win a precious title.

They say Waqa told them that he had money coming to him from his former French club and he needed a loan.
