Biography

A clever snap for goal who was Collingwood’s main forward in its early years in the VFL.

Smith headed the VFL goal kicking table with 31 in 1898 and his coolness and judgement made him a damaging player even if he sometimes concentrated on the man rather than the ball.

Played in the VFA with Richmond.
