Ruan Smith is a prolific junior representative prop who graduated from one of the world’s toughest rugby nurseries in South Africa’s Western Cape. Switching between Brisbane and Cape Town during his late teens, Smith became one of few players to represent two countries at schoolboys’ level when he was picked for the Australian and South African sides in consecutive years. Since then he has been part of the Stormers, Reds and Force Academy systems, earning his first Super Rugby caps for the Western Australian franchise in 2012. Ruan has accepted one of five EPS positions with the Brumbies for the 2013 Super Rugby season.
