Benetton Rugby has announced a new signing for next season, with Rhyno Smith signing a contract that will see him wear the green-and-white jersey until 30 June 2023 with an option for another year.
Smith has played with the Cheetahs from the 2018/2019 season, collecting 17 appearances with the Bloemfontein franchise in PRO14.
Antonio Pavanello on the new signing: "We start the announcements in view of the next one starting from Rhyno Smith: a versatile player, a utility back who managed to show off both in PRO14 and even before in Super Rugby and Currie Cup with the jerseys of several prominent South African teams. A player able to cover both the role of wing and that of extreme and who in the past has also covered the opening one, demonstrating excellent skills in the foot. It represents exactly the player profile we need in the future, managing to increase competition in the back department "
