Gloucester Rugby host Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership on Saturday and ahead of the fixture Chris Harris opened up about how excited he is to be back wearing Cherry and White.
On returning to the squad
“From a personal point of view, I haven’t played at Kingsholm for a long time so I’m looking forward to getting back out here, back in front of a home crowd. It’ll be good because we obviously missed out on the game last week, which is a bit of a frustration, but it’s all about Wasps and the boys are looking forward to that.
“We’re raring to go having had a week off and the boys are fresh and ready for it.”
“There’s that little bit of extra excitement and an element of frustration having not had a game last week. Ultimately, we’re looking forward to this game and getting stuck into Wasps.
“They’re an exciting team. They will look to play quite a lot. They generally play quite an exciting brand of rugby and play from deep so we’ve got to be aware of that but there are plenty of opportunities for us to really go at them.
“We’re in a good place. Results have been a bit up and down over the last few weeks but I think that element of excitement of what we could achieve this season is what’s going to be a big driver for us.”
On returning from Six Nations duty
“It’s exciting and it’s nice coming back into this environment that I haven’t been part of for eight weeks. I’m seeing how keen the boys are and it’s just a joy to be part of it again.
“We’re pushing as high as we can in the league and we obviously need a good win this weekend to be in a good place for that top four.”
On playing at Kingsholm
“When the Shed is behind you it’s awesome and it gives you that extra lift. I’m really looking forward to running out there on Saturday. It’ll be an exciting event I’m sure.”
