Smith and Slater to get statues outside AAMI Park but Cooper Cronk brushed

The Melbourne Storm have confirmed statues of legends Cameron Smith and Billy Slater will be erected outside AAMI Park but there was no room for the third member of the ‘Big Three’ – Cooper Cronk.

Cronk famously switched to Sydney at the end of 2017 and won back-to-back premierships with the Roosters.

Interestingly, iconic current coach Craig Bellamy won’t have a statue at this stage either.

The artists approved for the sculptures – Gillie and Marc – have previously bronzed the likes of Ricky Ponting and Cowboys icon Matt Bowen.
