Nottingham Rugby is delighted to announce two further signings ahead of their upcoming Greene King IPA Championship campaign.

 

Robinson And Venus

 

The Green and Whites have secured the services of Billy Robinson from Ealing Trailfinders and Corey Venus who was formerly part of the Leicester Tigers Academy.

Robinson, 26, is an exciting full back who previously played over 50 games for Moseley before his single season with Ealing.

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag said, "I'm delighted that we've managed to get Billy to Nottingham. He played last season for Ealing although was injured for part of their campaign but he has plenty of Championship experience having played over 50 times for Moseley.  He's an exciting addition that further strengthens the competition in the back three.

"He will add experience at full back and has good attacking attributes coupled with a good kicking game. He's still very hungry to learn and he will be able to develop in our environment while passing on some of his experience to the younger members of our backline."

Venus, 20, is a winger with outstanding pace who has represented Scotland at age group level.

Haag continued, "Corey is someone that came through the Leicester Tigers Academy a few seasons ago. He has terrific pace and has already shown a desire to come to Nottingham and fight for a place. He has lots of ability and being in a full time programme again will give him the opportunity to develop physically and really work on his skills."

Nottingham has also confirmed that Matthew Jarvis has now left the club and has moved to Ealing Trailfinders.
