Matt Smith joined the club from Glasgow Warriors on a deal until the end of the season in February 2020.
Having come through the ranks at Stirling County – where the back-row won the National Youth League Cup final in 2013 – Smith secured an Elite Development Programme place with Glasgow Warriors ahead of the 2014-15 season.
The 6ft 1in flanker was named as a Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy Stage 3 player in 2015, before joining Premiership club Glasgow Hawks that season.
Smith signed his first professional contract with the Warriors in December 2016 and made his debut against Ospreys the following February.
The back-row capped off his breakthrough season in professional rugby with his first two tries from the bench against Zebre in April 2017.
On the international stage, Smith has earned age-grade honours with Scotland U20, while the back-row was rewarded for a fine start to the 2018/19 season with a call-up to Scotland’s Guinness Six Nations squad for the 2019 Championship.
