R.E Smith

Played for Lansdowne 1st XV in the seasons 1889/90, 1890/1891 and 1892/ 93. He appears to have been a versatile player equally at home in the front and second rows and was capped at second row against England at Manchester on the 6/2/1892. The team was captained by fellow Lansdowne man, the famous scrumhalf V.C LeFanu and another Lansdowne man J.S Jameson partnered him at second row.

He won a Leinster Senior Cup medal in 1901 in the inaugural year of that competition.
