In 2002, Smith switched to rugby league to play with the Sydney Roosters and was part of the winning junior side in the Jersey Flegg premiership. Graduating to NSWRL Premier League, he scored a try in the Roosters’ 30-8 win over St George-Illawarra in the 2004 Premier League grand final. Smith signed with the London Broncos (later renamed Harlequins RL) in 2004 to play in the European Super League. In 2005 he made his international début for Tonga against Samoa in Sydney and scored two tries in their 34-20 win.

In 2008, Smith agreed a two-year deal with the Brumbies to switch to rugby union and join his older brother George Smith playing in the Super Rugby competition. He earned 47 caps for the Brumbies between 2008 and 2011.

Later in 2011, he moved to Japan to play for the Honda Heat in the 2011–12 Top League season. In June 2013, he signed a two-year deal with French Pro D2 team RC Narbonne.
