The Host with the Most

Nottingham Rugby's rough and tumble number six, Rupert Cooper, has recently set up his own private catering company offering unique dining and wine tasting evenings for different occasions called Borgia Bull.


Cooking has always been his preferred past time off the pitch, so taking it to a professional level has been a really important step for him. He commented, "I'm really passionate about cooking, it's great to get away from the rugby side of things, it's different and challenging and I'm really enjoying it.

Rupert credits his mum as his biggest inspiration saying, "My mum's a really great cook and she's always making delicious food, so I guess that's where I got my passion from."

Borgia Bull is just getting started and the website design is almost complete. People can enjoy Cooper's service in the comfort of their own home or they can enjoy dining out, with a twist, at his home.

His next event is The Secret Supper on the 5th of April where an exquisite four course menu is on offer for just £25 per head.

Cooper has recently returned to the rugby pitch following a prolonged shoulder injury picked up against Moseley in early November.

Commenting on the last game at Plymouth, he said, "I got a good 70 minutes at last weekend - and 10 minutes in the bin -but it felt good to dust the cobwebs off.  I've drawn a line under the injury now, it can only improve and I'm looking forward to getting back involved."

Nottingham Rugby's next home match is against Rotherham Titans on Sunday 9th March.  The match is an early kick off (1pm) so that fans are able to take in the Six Nations match between England and Wales afterwards.
