Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Ashburton United
Debut: 2008
Recruited from: Scotch College/Oakleigh Chargers (VIC) U18
Brownlow Votes: -

The small defender keeps producing consistent seasons, playing all but one game in 2013 and finishing ninth in the best and fairest. 

Averaging 14 disposals, three marks and three tackles a game, Smith is respected across the AFL and even kicked a goal last year, his first in more than two seasons.

Draft history: 2008 rookie elevation (Sydney).

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was very good. He obviously takes the best small forward every week and does a terrific job of it week in, week out.

His pre-season has been probably the first full pre-season he’s done in the last couple of years. He’s far fitter than he’s been for the last couple of years at this time of year.

We hope in 2014 he can carry on from an excellent pre-season and can continue to be an important part of our defensive structures.
