​Nottingham Set For First Away Game

9th September 2016

Nottingham Set For First Away Game

Nottingham Rugby face their first away test of the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season, with a trip to face Yorkshire Carnegie at Headlingley on Sunday.

Despite Worcester dual-registered trio of Derrick Appiah, Tiff Eden and Josh Adams all back with the Warriors this weekend, and the unprecedented amount of injuries Ian Costello's squad is currently having to cope with, a strong-looking side has still been selected for what should be an stern, early test of the Green and Whites' play-off credentials.

They will be up against a Yorkshire side, who are hotly tipped to give promotion favourites London Irish a run for their money this season.

Tom West comes in to replace injured loosehead prop Kieran Davies, whilst other enforced changes in the pack include Ben Morris moved from the back to the second row and handed the captain's role.

In the two meetings between the sides last season, both teams secured home victories, with tries from Paul Grant and Billy Robinson helping Nottingham to narrow 14-13 win at The Bay, back in December, whilst in April, the Yorkshiremen claimed their revenge in front of a live TV audience, with a 37-27 scoreline.

Team to face Yorkshire Carnegie: Billy Robinson; Calum Hall; Oli Evans; Vili Hakalo; Sam Yawayawa; Lawrence Rayner; Murray McConnell; Tom West; TJ Harris; Tom Heard; Morgan Eames; Ben Morris (c); Rob Langley; Jordan Coghlan; Shane Buckley. Replacements:Jimmy Stevens; Harry Morley; Josh Poullet; Matt Everard; Jacob Nash; Will Millett; James Stephenson.
