If Storm fans got a sample of "The Bulldog" in 2017, this year they received a wide-eyed glimpse at the future.

Smith bounced off the bench to play 21 games in Craig Bellamy's side this season.

Whenever the 22-year-old was part of the 17 the team had so much more spark off the sidelines.

Smith began his year by being named 'Man of the Camp' in the Club's gruelling pre-season camp.

He translated that into consistent football and culminated in the promising hooker being named the Storm Rookie of the Year.

Smith has capped off 2018 with selection in the New Zealand side, starring in his international debut against Australia.
