Biography:
Sponsored by Mobile Mouthguards. For all your Mechanical Ventilation And Air Conditioning needs! Will Smith was the shining light in Parramatta's disappointing end to 2017 and is now making a strong case to start the new season in the Eels' No.14 jersey.

Smith, who has been impressive for the Eels throughout a gruelling preseason, is held in such high regard by the Blue & Gold coaching staff thanks to his attitude towards the game and training.

After joining the club after suffering horrific knee damage during his time at the Panthers, tearing his ACL, medial ligament and meniscus in an injury that left rival clubs doubting he would run again, Smith was at his best form on the field when injuries to Clint Gutherson and Bevan French presented an opportunity to Smith.

Smith resigned with the Eels for another year during the 2017 season.
