Alex McKinnon and Cameron Smith will reportedly meet up to patch up their differences.

Last Sunday night, 60 Minutes aired a report in which McKinnon was critical of the Storm captain for his remonstration with referees after the tackle that left McKinnon paralysed with spinal injuries.

Matthew Johns told Triple M Grill Team the two were planning to meet.

“They are planning to catch up,” said Johns.

“There doesn’t need to be cameras there or audio.

“They will bury the hatchet, there’s no doubt about it.

“The sooner the two boys get to catch up, the better.”

Johns said he met with the Australian captain in Brisbane following Queensland’s Origin victory.

Smith was not granted a right of reply in the Channel Nine interview and has remained silent since.

He refused to be interviewed by Channel Nine at half-time during the State of Origin decider last week.
