Nottingham Go Back To School

After a good performance against a very strong Munster team last week, the Nottingham Rugby team have had a change of scenery for some of their training this week, in the build up to Saturday's British and Irish cup clash with Greene King IPA Championship rivals Plymouth Albion.

Munro And Fin At High School


The Green and White men went back to school this week when Nottingham High School invited the team down to train at their facilities. The change of scenery for training seemed to be something that the players enjoyed and benefited from.

Joe Munro, Nottingham's big inside centre said, "I really like it here, there is a lovely feel to the place and it's a great environment to train in."

Andrew Savage, the fast paced Green and White full back added, "It's great when we get the chance to train at a different venue, it really freshens things up. All the lads are really grateful to everyone at Nottingham High School."

Following the performance last Friday night in Ireland, the team are hoping to build on the performance. Although they can't qualify for the British and Irish cup quarter final following the defeat to Munster, the game at Meadow Lane on Saturday is another chance to build on performances ready for when the Green and Whites face Bedford in their next Championship fixture on Saturday 25th January.

Savage continued, "This week needs to be a springboard to build momentum, we need to keep the same intensity and work rate that was so good in the Munster game and get the small skill details right."

Munro added, "Our defence against Munster was some of the best I've seen, lots of aspects of our game were good and we just need to start making the right decisions in the right areas more often. This week is all about the performance, which we can take into the Bedford game."

Nottingham Rugby face Plymouth Albion on Saturday 18th January (Kick off 1pm) at Meadow Lane stadium. Advanced ticket offer; a group of 5 for £10 per person or individual adult tickets at £13 per person for the Haydn Green stand. Call 0115 9070070 to book in advance.
