Melbourne Storm are entering the era of LWCS – life without Cameron Smith. The 430-game veteran and future Immortal won't be running out for the Storm for the first time since 2002 after announcing his retirement on the eve of the season. It's obviously a massive loss but we're not about to write off Craig Bellamy's well-drilled side.

Bellamy always finds a way to get the best out of his players and this season should be no exception. Sure Smith is gone but his namesake Brandon Smith comes into the starting side at hooker following a knee injury to Maroons rake Harry Grant.

Along with Smith, premiership heroes Suliasi Vunivalu, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, Paul Momirovski, Albert Vete, Ricky Leutele and Sandor Earl have all left the club. Reimis Smith (Bulldogs) and George Jennings (Eels) are the new signings. Expect the Storm to be in the thick of the finals and pushing hard for their fifth premiership.
