Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Henley Sharks/Woodville-West Torrens
Debut: v Hawthorn, Round 1, 2011
Recruited from: Woodville West Torrens
Brownlow Votes: -

A fractured collarbone sidelined Smith for the opening four rounds of the season, but he played every game from then on. The damaging Crow was used predominantly across half-back, where he defended well and also used his run and carry to counterattack. Smith collected a career-high 29 possessions in the final round of the season and will be looking for more midfield opportunities going forward. Celebrated his 50th game in Round 19.

Season by Season

Season by Season

The young wingman was recast as a defender under assistant coach Darren Milburn in 2012. Smith played 22 games in his second season, performing shutdown roles on star opposition forwards, including three-time Geelong premiership player Steven Johnson, and also providing plenty of run. His long-range goals became of his game a feature late in the season, and his performance throughout the finals series earned plaudits from the Crows coaching staff.

Season by Season

Smith impressed in his debut season, playing 14 games and showing maturity well beyond his years. The dashing 19-year-old averaged 13 disposals, picking up a career-high 23 touches against Port Adelaide in round four. The lean-bodied onballer added 3kg of muscle mass over the pre-season and should become a mainstay either in the midfield or at half-back in 2012.
