Green and Whites skipper on a mission with Corsairs

BRENT Wilson is determined to take the Green and Whites to new heights.

Corsairs WilsonAnd it's not just as captain of Championship side Nottingham Rugby, but as coach of lower league outfit Corsairs.

For Wilson, the top job with the Midlands Four East (North) side is a perfect fit - the clubs share a long history, the iconic hoops, and even their home at the Lady Bay Sports Complex.

The former New Zealand Sevens international has started to turn things around for the competition strugglers, leading them to their first league win of the campaign against Tupton earlier this month.

That is just the beginning of Wilson's plans as he tries to rebuild the side from the ground up after their relegation last season.

"Since I got my coaching badge I've been on the lookout for a challenge and I've certainly found one with Corsairs," said Wilson.

"It's a club with amazing potential, there is so much youth, hundreds of juniors and minis running around in green and white every week, and most importantly there is a lot of ambition.

"Right now the door is open for players of all abilities to train with the senior side on Tuesday and Thursday nights at Lady Bay as we try build a squad.

"It has been difficult with low numbers, but there is a core group and great enthusiasm among the lads to make Corsairs the best it can be."
