Hurricanes winger David Smith will play for Australia's Western Force in next season's Super 15 provincial campaign, officials said today.
The Samoan-born Smith, 24, scored seven tries last season in four starts with the Hurricanes and played for the Barbarians against Ireland and England, scoring a try against the English at Twickenham.
He played for Taranaki in the ITM Cup this season, where he played alongside new Western Force playmaker Willie Ripia.
Smith will arrive in Perth later this month.
Having already represented the New Zealand Sevens side, Smith will be the Western Force marquee player in the 2011 season.
