Rohan J. Smith (born 28 June 1966) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Australian Football League (AFL)[1] and the Port Adelaide Football Club in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).

Port Adelaide (1985–1990)[edit]

Smith worked his way through the Port Adelaide's junior until he made seven senior appearances during the 1985 season. In 1986 Smith became a regular, first choice selection for Port Adelaide.[2]

During the 1989 National Draft, Smith was selected by the Sydney Swans, from Port Adelaide, where he had been a member of premiership teams the years prior. The Swans selected him with pick 36. However he wouldn't play a senior game for the club.

St Kilda (1991)[edit]

The following year he was traded from Sydney to St Kilda, in return for pick 58 in the 1990 AFL Draft.[3] He was already 24 when he made his debut and appeared in a total of three games for St Kilda, in the 1991 season.[4] His year with St Kilda was dogged by injury and returning to Adelaide he missed the 1990 SANFL Grand Final.[5]

Port Adelaide (1992–1997)[edit]

After his stint with St Kilda, Smith returned to his original club and took part in a further four Port Adelaide premierships, in 1992, 1994, 1995 and 1996. He finished his Port Adelaide career with exactly 250 SANFL games.[6]
