'Great to be back out there' - Smith
Hayden Smith played 80 minutes for Saracens in their 32-36 away to London Irish.
The USA international lock-forward had an impressive outing for Saracens in what was his first start of the season.
“It was great to get out there with the guys again,” said Smith. “It’s one of those things, when you’re not out there you certainly miss it, so to have played today was great. I really enjoyed it.”
On Saturday’s game the 29-year-old added; “It was a tough day and London Irish should take a lot of credit. They took a lot of our energy away and played very well. I’m sure we’ll look back at the film of the game and look to improve in a lot of areas. Ultimately we showed enough character to win the game. It was a high pressure situation at the end, but we kept our composure to score the try.”
