NRL cult hero Brandon Smith has once again pulled his old tricks and sent a crowd into hysterics with a cheeky one-liner about his anatomy.
The dummy half nicknamed ‘Hectic Cheese’ was told ‘Everyone wants your name and where you are from in Tonga’, as he was interviewed at a ceremony in New Zealand on Wednesday.
Smith, 26, a Waiheke Island native who boasts Maori and Norwegian ancestry, joked that he was “Tongan from the waist down.”

The crowd licked Smith’s ironic response to the post to promote New Zealand and Tonga’s clash at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium next Saturday.
It promises to be an exciting atmosphere as the country hosts a top-level rugby match for the first time since the Warriors played at the venue in late August 2019.
Due to the Covid pandemic, the Warriors selflessly settled in Australia to ensure the NRL competition could continue.
One of the foremost hookers in rugby league, Smith is a fan favorite for his larrikin character.
Whether pretending to ‘climb’ Craig Bellamy during training in Melbourne, or adding some rocks to his coaches’ travel bag before hopping on a team bus, there’s rarely a dull moment when Smith is in the mood to entertain. .

He even once snatched a lollipop from a young child’s hand—when it later emerged, the child was Bellamy’s grandson.
After long expressing his desire to start games rather than be an impact player from the bench at NRL level, Smith will join the Sydney Roosters next season on a three-year deal.
After his NRL debut in 2017, Smith won a premiership with the Storm in 2020.
He missed this year’s Melbourne NRL season opener due to a suspension and was also fined $15,000 by the NRL following the club’s now infamous ‘white powder’ scandal last September.
Smith was also beaten with a suspended $50,000 fine by the Storm and resigned from the club’s Emerging Leadership group following the incident.
