Holford aims to return with a bang

PROP Michael Holford says he has returned to Nottingham a refreshed player after his short-term loan at Leicester.

Holford actionHolford (pictured) suited up for the Tigers in their Premiership match against London Wasps at the weekend, called upon as cover for a front-row that was stretched to the limit.

The 30-year-old, nicknamed 'Iron Mike' by the Welford Road faithful, was right at home wearing the Tiger stripes having played more than 50 games for the club throughout his career.

The week-long spell was more than just a chance to go back to the future in the top flight with Leicester, it turned out to be an opportunity to recharge himself for the Green and Whites' campaign.

"To get away for a week and then come back has got me mentally rejuvenated," Holford said.

"I love playing for Notts and it has been a great season so far. The time at Leicester was intense, the training is always tough there, and it was a privilege to be asked to go back.

"For me, I'm striving to consistently be at my best for Nottingham and with the boys around me this season I think we have all managed it."

Holford faces a battle to win back his place in the Green and Whites' starting XV against the Cornish Pirates on Sunday after Ryan Bower shone alongside Matt Parr and Joe Duffey in Nottingham's emphatic 52-7 win over Doncaster.
