YOUNG PLAYMAKER Fletcher Smith joined the Hurricanes for the 2019 Investec Super Rugby season, making six appearances in the team’s campaign which saw them reach the Semi-Final.
Despite being only 24, Smith has built up great experience, with a command for the game that belies his years. He is accurate with the boot and keeps a clear head under pressure, often finding the gap with pinpoint passes.
During the 2018 Mitre 10 Cup competition, he was instrumental in Waikato’s promotion to the Premiership, scoring 130 points including 54 conversions in what was his first season with the province.
These early performances have quickly earned Smith his first Māori All Blacks selection and he will be looking to further develop his game on the international stage.
