Crowd favourite David Smith was initially drafted into the Hurricanes squad in 2007 after lighting up the Air New Zealand Cup with Auckland in 2006, scoring six tries in eleven appearances in his debut season.

The speedster returned home to make his debut for the Blues in 2008 and made five appearances, but he signed for Wellington for the 2009 season and played for the Hurricanes from 2009-10.

In 2010 he was the Hurricanes’ leading try-scorer with seven tries, despite being in the starting side in four of his 11 appearances in the Super 14. Smith then joined the Western Force for the 2011 Investec Super Rugby season.
