Jeremy Smith as a player

As Jeremy Smith gets ready to play the final home game of his career this Sunday, Knights TV talks to some of his teammates and coaches from over the years.

TRENT HODKINSON

"He's one of the only old school players left in the game. I know when I came up against him I was very intimidated by him."

SIONE MATA'UTIA

"Everyone knows that he's someone you can rely on to be working hard and working for his mate next to him."

ALEX McKINNON

"I've learned a lot from Jez, I still learn from him today. As a young kid coming through he taught me a lot."

GREG INGLIS

"He'll do anything for his team, and the person standing beside him."

DARIUS BOYD

"Whenever he was in the team you felt safe, and you knew he'd do his job and play well."

PAUL GALLEN

"His best attribute as a player was his competitiveness, every single game he went out there to win and do his job."

CRAIG BELLAMY

"No one ever got on top of him, and no situation ever got on top of him."

CAMERON SMITH

"Jez's best attribute both as a footy player and a person was his loyalty. He's someone that you can trust with your life."
