Strong in opening win
MWestern Bulldogs
March 19, 2021
Smith scored two majors and collected 36 disposals (23 kicks, 13 handballs) to go with eight marks made during Friday's 69-53 win over Collingwood.
ANALYSIS
Smith scored a third of his total goals from last season in the first match of the new one during a strong all-around showing. While his stats may regress somewhat, the midfield strength for the Bulldogs could make it hard to pin any one player down and give Smith plenty of opportunities to shine.

Career best in win
MWestern Bulldogs
August 16, 2020
Smith logged 37 disposals (26 kicks, 11 handballs) and made six clearances during Saturday's 111-54 win over Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Smith set a new career high for disposals in a match during an extremely favorable matchup against the last-placed Crows. After struggling to even reach 20 disposals over his last three matches, Smith had the kind of performance that hasn't showed up lately. It will be another task to see him raise his level of production against tougher opponents.
Fantastic despite loss
MWestern Bulldogs
July 15, 2020
Smith had 26 disposals (11 kicks, 15 handballs), six tackles, one mark, one goal and one behind in Sunday's 103-51 loss to the Blues.
ANALYSIS
Smith took his place in the lineup after suffering a concussion the week before and certainly looked to be functioning on all cylinders. Still yet to play 30 professional games, Smith has been a standout for the Bulldogs and given his current trajectory, should be a target for many moving forward.
In lineup against Carlton
MWestern Bulldogs
July 9, 2020
Smith made the lineup for Sunday's Round Six match with Carlton.
ANALYSIS
Smith suffered a concussion early into Round Five but has since seemingly been given the all-clear to participate this weekend. He's only scored once this season but has collected at least 20 disposals in three of his four complete matches.
Suffers concussion

Concussion
July 4, 2020
Smith suffered a concussion in the second quarter and missed the rest of Saturday's match against North Melbourne.
ANALYSIS
Smith's contributions have tailed off since the beginning of the restart and now he could miss some time after a clash with Shaun Atley of North Melbourne. Smith will certainly undergo more tests over the course of the week before his status is decided.
Solid numbers in loss
MWestern Bulldogs
June 15, 2020
Smith produced 29 disposals (nine kicks, 20 handballs), five tackles and two marks during Sunday's 88-49 loss to St. Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Smith was one of only a few Bulldogs able to walk away from Sunday's game with his head held high. He matched Zak Jones with a game-high 29 disposals, the high point of his short career. The Bulldogs are now languishing at the bottom of the ladder and will need to turn things around if they are to make a push for this year's premiership.
