NOTTINGHAM winger Jack Cobden has been
forced out of today's (Sunday, February 24) British and Irish Cup
clash against Llandovery due to illness.
Cobden will not face Llandovery and has been made to wait to join
100 club at Nottingham. PIC: Alison Bowden
Cobden was poised to make his 100th appearance for
the Green and Whites in the must-win Pool 8 match at Meadow Lane
Stadium (2.15pm kick-off).
David Jackson has been called up as Cobden's replacement and
will start on the left wing in the showdown for top spot in the
group and a place in the quarter-finals.
Nottingham needs a comprehensive bonus-point win over the Welsh
Principality Premiership side to progress to the knock-out stage of
the cross-border competition. The Green and Whites also need to
keep the visitors quiet, with Llandovery needing only a losing
bonus-point to advance to the next round.
