Ea Lla Koto will face the Lions of the North in one of only two fixtures that will feature Premiership teams doing battle but Venter feels it bodes well playing against a more familiar foe.
“I think it’s a fairly good draw for us,” Venter said. “It’s good that we have been pitted against a PSL team, we know what to expect and they will certainly be no surprises as we know them and see them week in week out on TV playing.
“I also think the home ground advantage will work in our favours and I think we should do well in this tournament.”
