    Rookie Kiwis hooker Brandon Smith is planning on keeping things simple in his test debut against Australia this weekend in Auckland

    Rookie Kiwis hooker Brandon Smith is planning on keeping things simple in his test debut against Australia this weekend in Auckland

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The Storm hooker is one of two new faces in the starting 13 alongside Roosters centre Joseph Manu.

    Smith says he's not focusing on out pointing his Kangaroos opposite Damian Cook.

    He says he wants to play better than Cook but it's not his focus and he is just excited to get a start.
