NRL cult hero Brandon Smith has been in electric form this season, but it seems not everyone is happy.
In the eyes of the Melbourne Storm fans, 'The Cheese' has proved he can certainly fill the gaping void left by retiring hooker Cameron Smith.
But for the F.R.U. (Front Rowers Association), Smith is on the brink of having his membership revoked.
The Front Rowers Association has now penned a personal letter to Smith, urging him to stop his prolific try-scoring form and instead opt for a more traditional style of play we're used to seeing from those wearing the number 8, 9 or 10 jumper - a style of play that rarely sees some front rowers get across the line.
"As you know the number one creed of the F.R.U. is that players, who don a number 8, 9 or 10 should see tries scored by accident only," the letter read.

"You have now scored 7 tries this year and 6 in the last 5 weeks alone.
"Do you need to be reminded Mr Smith that the man whose jumper you inherited, ironically who also goes by the surname Smith, scored the same amount of tried you have in 5 weeks, in his last 3 seasons. A true F.R.U luminary."
The letter - which was later posted to social media by ex-NRL player Joel Caine - was written and signed by former Wests Tigers prop Bryce Gibbs, who hilariously included his not-so-prolific scoring record at the bottom of the note.

The letter was intended to reach Smith prior to the Melbourne Storm's clash with the New Zealand Warriors, but 'The Cheese' clearly missed the memo and ended up bagging a first half try.
"Mr. Smith, if you are anywhere near the try line v the Warriors it is highly recommended by the F.R.U. board that you are thinking Pass NOT run," the letter added.
"We hope you heed the advice and remain in the F.R.U."
It remains to be seen whether Smith's membership will be "terminated effective immediately", but he certainly doesn't look like he'll stop scoring anytime soon.
