Last I heard he got into trouble over in the UK with Kevin Locke. Apparently, that was back in 2015 and I haven't really heard anything since.What ever happened to Tim Smith? He had arguably the best rookie season of any half ever, how could someone that freakish end up on the scrap heap like two seasons later?
I'm not sure what to make of Tim. He was talented enough but I think there were a few factors that propped up that season and set the bar way too high. Once other teams caught up to the Eels, things didn't come as easily and he couldn't perform as well under pressure.
I still think he could have had a solid career in the NRL if he didn't go off the boil in 2008. By the time he tried to make a comeback in 2010 it was with the Sharks when they were struggling and as a mid-season pick-up he couldn't right the ship on his own.
I couldn't see him making a big difference, but Tim Smith wearing the #7 at the Broncos in 2010 is a fun what if that sadly you could only play out in Rugby League 3.
