Cameron Smith will miss the start of the 2015 NRL season after undergoing ankle surgery, and Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy is seeking ways to lighten the work load Real Madrid James jersey on the Australian captain.
Bellamy revealed today that Smith was to have surgery later in the day and was expected to miss the first three to four weeks of the season as he recuperated.
The 31-year-old suffered a high ankle sprain in the last game of the NRL regular season against Brisbane.
The injury looked to have cleared up after some time in a moon boot, but it recurred while Smith was leading Australia in the Four Nations final loss to New Zealand.
"It healed up okay, but he hurt it again in the final," Bellamy told SEN 1116.
"So they've decided he certainly Chelsea home jersey needs an operation on it or it's just going to cause him issues throughout the year.
"He just wants to be able to get back to a hundred per cent, so they thought this was the only way we could do that."
The enforced lay-off to start the season should at Liverpool jersey 2015 least help Smith to pace himself through 2015.
But Bellamy conceded he'd prefer the Kangaroos and Queensland captain lighten his workload as he moves into the next stage of his career.
"I'd like to see him scale it back a bit, but I'm certainly not going to make him Real Madrid jersey do it," he said.
"He's played more games than anybody else in our game in the last two or three years."
Bellamy said the Storm wanted to find ways of reducing Smith's playing time in 2015 - a suggestion that could well elicit a cranky phone call from the player.
"I know he won't like this - but maybe not playing the 80 minutes every week," he said.
"We'll have to find other ways to lessen his workload."
