alive their hopes of qualifying for the Quarter Finals. It is
Catchpole's first season with the Green and Whites and, at just 19
years old, he is relishing the opportunity to play Championship
rugby. "I feel very fortunate at such a young age to be playing
Championship rugby and gain valuable first team experience," said

experience and we were so close to beating them back at Meadow
Lane. It's important we stay switched on for the full 80
minutes, don't give them anything easy and make sure when we get
into attacking areas on the pitch we come away with points,"

Leicester Tigers, shares Catchpole's excitement for the trip to

we just need to ensure our accuracy is high and we continue to work
hard," explained Price.

Whites, is enjoying his rugby and the experience of playing
Championship rugby with Nottingham.
"It's great to get valuable game time and it's also nice to get
exposed to different game plans and styles of play. The lads are a
tight group and I am really enjoying playing with them all," said
