The Storm players spoke early in the week about ensuring they delivered a fitting performance in Smith's milestone game.
Scoring seven tries to one at AAMI Park in Melbourne, they did so in spades.
And captain Smith, as usual, was front and centre despite taking a pectoral injury into the game.
The 34-year-old topped his team's tackle count and had four try assists.
"The players really put in a big effort for Cameron," coach Craig Bellamy said.
