Aaron Smith joins the Highlanders for his fourth Super Rugby season after being signed in 2011 as backup to All Blacks’ scrumhalf Jimmy Cowan. Smith’s form led him to becoming the first-choice halfback in 2012 and he was also selected for the All Blacks that same year. A skilful distributor and reader of the play, Smith has solidified himself as an integral part of both the Highlanders and All Blacks and will be looking to maintain his form from the end of year tour into the 2014 Super Rugby campaign.
