A key forward, Smith was drafted from TAC Cup side the Southern Stingrays. He played only four senior games for Sydney, all in the 1994 AFL season.[2]

Smith was a prolific forward for Springvale in the Victorian Football League. His goal tally of 470 is a club record.[3] In 1997 he kicked 107 goals, to become the first player since Jamie Shaw in 1990 to score a century of goals in a season. He won the VFL Leading Goal-kicker award that year and again in 1998.
