Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: 1 career vote.
Previous AFL Clubs: Geelong.
Junior Club: Payneham Norwood Union (SA)/Sturt (SANFL).
Draft History: 2010 National Draft selection (Geelong) No. 37.

Horlin-Smith joined the SUNS in 2018 in a trade with Geelong in the hope of more opportunity to play AFL football. Horlin-Smith played 51 games in his seven seasons at the Cats, but suiting up for just four matches in 2018 prompted his decision to move to the SUNS. Horlin-Smith averaged 16 disposals, four tackles, three clearances and almost a goal per game in those matches.

Now with the SUNS, Horlin-Smith will hope to be able to play more football in his natural position as an inside-midfielder. He will provide support to the likes of mainstay midfielders Touk Miller and David Swallow, while also bringing great character to the club off-field.
