Munro: We will go in firing

JOE Munro has vowed that Nottingham will throw everything at Falcons in tonight's top of the table face-off at Kingston Park (8pm kick-off).

Munro breakWith the Green and Whites afforded time off in between tonight's (November 4) meeting and the next league encounter with Doncaster at Meadow Lane on November 25, the centre (pictured) says there will be plenty of time for bodies to heal after battling the star-studded northeasterners.

"We have a big break after Friday with the Championship representative game next week so we are all in this for one last giant push," Munro said.

"There will be a chance to rest and recharge the batteries after Newcastle."

Recuperation has been the theme of the week at Nottingham's Lady Bay training base with the short Sunday-to-Friday turnaround a physically demanding hurdle for Martin Haag's men.

The second placed Nottingham is eight points adrift of the front-running Falcons, and make minimal alterations to the side that humbled Bristol 63-7 five days ago.

Only three changes have been made with Tom Calladine making his first league start for the Green and Whites, coming in ahead of Rupert Cooper as blind side flanker.

Centre Tim Streather has recovered from injury and newly signed hooker Shaun Malton come into the match day 22, named on the bench.

Having recorded one of Nottingham's most remarkable results in its 135 year history, Munro insists motivation to topple the former Premiership club is at an all-time high.

"After Sunday the confidence is very high and yet we know we go to Kingston Park as underdogs," Munro said.

"At the same time we fully believe we can do the job up there.

"With the results and performances we have had these past few weeks, things have really started to click. And when they have clicked, it has been amazing to be part of."
