A tall, athletic ball-runner and fearless defender, Jordan Smiler comes to the Brumbies after a successful career on the global Sevens circuit. A former New Zealand Sevens squad member, Smiler switched his allegiances in 2011 to skipper the Australian side at the Oceania Championships in Samoa. Having cut his teeth in Waikato’s aged grade ranks, Smiler moved to Australia looking for greater opportunities. He flourished under the coaching of Scott Fava at Northern Suburbs in Sydney's Shute Shield, running the side like clockwork alongside fellow Brumbies Zack Holmes and Scott Sio. At 27 years of age, Smiler is looking to use the experience he has gained over the last decade of professional rugby to give him and edge over his opposition.
