Marcus Smith reveals his top three fly-halves

by Saba Gulmagarashvili

Marcus Smith said that he spent two sessions a week training with England’s World Cup hero Jonny Wilkinson, who is one of his top three fly-halves, throughout the autumn campaign.

The 22-year-eyes old’s have been opened to what it takes to be a success on the international level thanks to the former Newcastle playmaker’s incredible dedication to training and preparation.

Smith’s Comment:

“For me, that is the biggest learning I get from him in terms of mental preparation,” 

“How to deal with things that don’t always go your way, how to deal with things that go your way and just how to live – how to be a good person,”

“I do try and aim beyond the posts, pick a target but I don’t have an imaginary woman or Coke can.”

With 2,249 points in 208 games, he is one of Harlequins’ all-time greats. His 20-point haul against Leicester in 2012, when Harlequins won their first-ever Premiership title, was undoubtedly a highlight.


Dan Carter

Smith’s comment:

“Carter has everything: a superb kicking game, a beautifully balanced running game and a sound defence.”


Jonny Wilkinson

Smith’s comment:

“Jonny Wilkinson has been working hard with me to help me keep getting better … he’s the best of all time in my opinion.”
