Nelson Smith

An incredibly humble man, who talents on the football field still follow him to this day!  A star member of the Western Division, country rugby league side of ‘74 that took on and beat the worlds best. Ian Heads authored a book about the team  ‘The day the music died’ is its title.

Nelson relished the opportunity play for his beloved Wellington Cowboys and represented Nanima by playing the game he loved to the bet of his ability.
