Conrad Smith

Midfield

Conrad Smith
THE SENIOR statesman of the All Blacks midfield, Conrad Smith can call on both skills and smarts to achieve success.

Impressive in 2011 – he featured in 10 Tests last year including six RWC 2011 matches – he has taken big strides for the Hurricanes in 2012 Investec Super Rugby as both a player and the captain.

Known to teammates as 'Snake' for his ability to slide through defences, Smith has vision and the skill to set up his outside flyers when his own attacking options become limited.
