Ahoy Molloy - Meet Alfie

Alfie Molloy joined Nottingham Rugby this season from Premiership side London Irish, where he had been part of the club's academy and enjoyed successful appearances in the London Irish A league fixtures.

Molloy moved to Nottingham to further not just his rugby ambitions but also his education. He is a 1st year student at Nottingham Trent University, studying Quantity Surveying and Commercial and Construction Management.

 

Molloy had a difficult start to his time at Nottingham suffering with injuries, but since returning to full fitness and making his debut against Bristol Rugby at The Memorial Stadium in October, Molloy has played seven games for the Green and Whites. He has transitioned well into the 13 position and put in a string of good performances while forming a good relationship with centre partner Joe Munro.

He said, "I've loved my time at Nottingham rugby so far, the club has been very good to me and I've been very well looked after. The lads were very welcoming when I joined and there's a great atmosphere between the boys. I've learnt a lot from the coaching staff and by training and playing alongside some great players, which has been very beneficial to me. It's been great to get some good game time as well since returning from injury at the beginning of January.

"It's definitely been challenging training in a full time environment when trying to keep up with my University studies. Time management is the hardest thing when you have a deadline at the same time as training or matches for example. However, I find it very rewarding and it also adds a lot of structure to my life and keeps me busy. After studying for several hours to then be able to go and train is a good release."

At only 20 years old the future looks bright for Alfie Molloy, whose aspirations are to play Premiership rugby one day.

He continued, "In the long term, I'd love to help Nottingham push for promotion, as my ambition is to play top flight rugby in the Premiership. In the mean time, I plan on learning off all the coaches and players around me in order to help develop me into the best player I can possibly be."
