Nottingham Hoping To Continue Winning Run

Nottingham travel to Gloucestershire tomorrow evening to take on Hartpury University in the Rugby Union Championship with the ‘green and whites’ looking to extend their 100% record after winning their first two games of the season so far.

Neil Fowkes team are currently third and can go top with a win, all be it for 24 hours by leapfrogging Cornish Pirates and Newcastle Falcons.

Hartpury have lost both their games so far having finished tenth last season in their debut campaign at this level.

Nottingham welcome back Canadian International Shane O’Leary from the Rugby World Cup in Japan whilst Llewelyn Jones and Sam Lewis also return to the side after missing out on the starting 15 for the win over London Scottish last week.

Sam Lewis replaces Seb Cecil who suffered a knock on Friday whilst Cameron Jordan also comes in to replace Tommy Holmes who injured his thumb. Tommy Matthews has returned to Northampton so O’Leary will replace him at fly half.

The match takes place at the Gillman’s Ground with a 7:30pm kick off.

Starting Team: Sean Scanlon, David Williams, Harry Strong, Luke Peters, Ben Foley, Shane O’Leary, Murray McConnell (c), Aniseko Sio, Luke Cole, Oisin Heffernan, Llewelyn Jones, Danny Qualter, Sam Lewis, Will Owen, James Connelly.

Replacements: Jake Farnworth, Jamie Jack, Billy Walker, Cameron Jordan, Tui Uru, Alex Dolly, Jack Spittle, Kyran Bungaroo.
