Possessing tenacity and determination to get to the try line, Smith provides the Emirates Western Force with another skillful attacking option and will join a formidable outside back combination with the likes of O’Connor, Commonwealth Games silver medallist Nick Cummins and Cameron Shepherd. A player with genuine ‘X-Factor’, Smith scored seven tries last season in just four starts for the Hurricanes and at 24 years of age has his best rugby ahead of him. His Super Rugby performances in 2010 were acknowledged with selection in the Barbarians side that tackled Ireland and England in the UK, scoring a try against the English at Twickenham.A player that has the capacity to be a genuine star in the modern day game, his speed and ability to beat people will have the club's sea of blue on the edge of their seats and wanting to see more.As an opposition player Smith was a thorn in the side of the Emirates Western Force on more than a few occasions. He scored a late try for the Hurricanes in a one point come from behind win at Subiaco Oval in 2009 and was again the danger man last season, scoring two tries when the sides clashed in Wellington. Smith’s ability to inflict pain on the scoreboard is something Emirates Western Force coaching staff will no doubt be happy to have working in their favour next season, while his arrival also covers the loss of retired veteran Scott Staniforth.The Samoan born flyer will be one of three players to have joined the Emirates Western Force from the Hurricanes alongside Willie Ripia and Tim Fairbrother.
