“It’s not been hard for me to build this game up for the players it’s certainly one of our goals to perform well on Friday,” said Smith.
“It’s a very important game for us and we have treated it with the same sort of respect as we do every Super League game.
“We’ve prepared the best we can; we’ll have our strongest outfit out there and are keen to perform well. Everybody’s put their hand up to play in this very special game for the club.”
The Dragons arrived in the UK with a squad full of international talent, including England stand-off Gareth Widdop and New Zealand half-back Benji Marshall.
The squad have been training in Salford ahead of Friday’s game and head coach Paul McGregor is expecting a close contest.
“We have had a good week of training and our boys are ready to go,” said McGregor.
“The boys are really excited to be able to play on the international stage and they know how important this game is for us as a club as we head into our season.
“Warrington are a great team, they have had a good pre-season and start to the season and we know that we are in for a very tough match.”
