Hartpury Halt Nottingham’s Run

Hartpury 12-6 Nottingham (RFU Championship) 25.10.19

Nottingham Rugby were beaten by Hartpury on Friday night in a downpour at the ALPAS Arena that dents the Green & Whites promotion push.

With the away side conceding 10 first half penalties the Gloucestershire outfit lead 6-0 at half time as conditions worsened with rain through the night.

In the second half Bragman kicked his third penalty from four to make it 9-0 before Shane O’Leary, who missed in the first half could twice kick over setting up a frantic final ten minutes.

Hartpury though furthered their lead on 73 when Bragman kicked over another penalty and despite a late push by Nottingham the home side held on to inflict the first defeat on the Green & Whites this season.

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