Biography:

Fullback and utility Will Smith is set to reach the 50 NRL match milestone in 2019, which will be his sixth season as a NRL footballer.

Severe injuries have on a large part held him back.

Smith sustained a torn ACL, medial ligament and meniscus during his time at the Panthers that left some to doubt if he would run again.

But he’s rebounded strongly and gone on to play 27 NRL matches in his first two seasons with the Eels.
