When asked for the highlight of his rugby career Ben Smith doesn't hesitate and it's not winning the Rugby World Cup as you might expect. He speaks to Paul Dwyer about his career for the Highlanders in the second part of a three part interview. Smith said it was an "easy" choice picking the Highlanders winning Super Rugby in 2015 as his career highlight. Smith also talked about the lows of the 2013 season when the Highlanders failed to perform despite signing superstars like Ma'a Nonu and Brad Thorn. He said looking at the team sheet at the start of the season half the team was thinking "right when are these playoffs?"
