All-rounder Ruaidhri Smith hit the headlines on his Championship debut for Glamorgan against Kent at the SWALEC Stadium in 2013 as the teenage all-rounder claimed a wicket with his maiden delivery in first-class cricket.

He has also featured for the Scottish Under 19 side before making his One-Day International debut for Scotland against Afghanistan in 2016.
The 2014 season saw the young all-rounder score his maiden Championship fifty against Gloucestershire, whilst in 2015 he returned career-best bowling figures of 3/32 against Derbyshire at Chesterfield. Having completed a degree in Mathematics at Bristol University, the highlight of the 2016 season for Ruaidhri was a hat-trick during Glamorgan’s match against the Pakistan A tourists at Newport. He struggled with injuries during 2017, and will be looking to press for a place in the 1st XI during 2018.
