Smid raring to go ahead of Trailfinders Challenge Cup kick-off
Captain Rayn Smid says the launch of the new competition has given everyone a real lift as they prepare to start the tournament against Saracens.
The Green and Whites welcome Saracens for the opening game, and the South African admits that it doesn't get much bigger than that.
"Firstly we would of course like to thank Mike Gooley and Trailfinders for making this tournament possible. It's massive for us and gives us a real target to win some silverware."
He added: "The game against Saracens gives us a great opportunity to show what we can do and the level that we’re at. We know where we want to be and we have to take them on and make a statement."
