George Smith

George Smith is arguably the greatest Australia player of the professional era who continues to set standards for his teammates even into his late 30s.
The flanker made 111 appearances for the Wallabies between 2000 and 2013, winning every honour the game has to offer in the Southern Hemisphere. He captured Super Rugby titles with the Brumbies, was the Super Rugby Player of the Year three times and the first man to win two John Eales Medals.
In the back row he set supreme breakdown skills alongside the ability to run and handle like a three-quarter and brought his talents to bear in some of the Barbarians’ best recent performances.
Smith made six appearances for the club between 2009 and 2015 beginning with a historic win over New Zealand at Twickenham. He also featured in victories against England, Wales and Ireland.
