Premier hints at bronze statue of Cameron Smith outside Suncorp
- Hey JT, you up for Origin?
- The man who dominated an era
- Smith’s finest Origin games
- What now for Maroons?
ANNASTACIA Palaszczuk has hinted she is open to immortalising Queensland great Cameron Smith with a bronze statue outside Suncorp Stadium in light of his representative retirement.
Speaking in State Parliament on Tuesday morning, Ms Palaszczuk said she was keen to hear from Queenslanders regarding the issue, following Smith’s announcement yesterday.
“Perhaps it’s time we saw some more bronze statues outside of Suncorp Stadium,” she said.
“I want to hear from the fans, should it be Cameron, JT or Alfie? Perhaps it should be all three.
“Tell us what you think and we’ll get the ball rolling.”
Ms Palaszczuk said Smith’s retirement was a “blow” for Queensland but she was confident there would be another player to fill the void.
“If Origin has taught us one thing, it’s when all looks lost, there’s always another Queenslander to take the ball through the gap and up to the try line,” she said.
