Biography

Kiwi prop actually represented Queensland during the divided 1997 ARL season before representing the Rest of the World against Australia. The following year, the Steelers prop made his Test debut for the Kiwis before being named co-captain (with Nathan Brown) of the merged St George I’warra club in 1999. After the stunning loss to Melbourne in the grand final, Smith’s Australian career was ruined by a series of suspensions for illegal tackles and lifting his knee in the tackle. At the end of 2001 he opted for a fresh start in England, signing with Wigan. He was later a member of the Wigan team which contested the final of the 2004 English Challenge Cup. Smith returned to Australia and spent the final two years of his career with the Knights.
