Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

NOTTINGHAM Rugby are look­ing to get back to win­ning ways af­ter los­ing 36-28 to Cor­nish Pi­rates in Pen­zance last week­end.

The Green and Whites have won their last two home matches and head coach Neil Fowkes hopes his side will con­tinue to build on their mo­men­tum at The Bay when they face Hart­pury RFC on Sun­day (kick-off 3pm).

Speak­ing ahead of the game, Fowkes said: “We were very dis­ap­pointed with our per­for­mance in the first half against Pi­rates but I’m very proud of the way the boys came back af­ter half time.

“We’d had three good re­sults and Pi­rates re­ally upped the tempo against us as.

“On the back of three re­sults teams start to look at you dif­fer­ently.

“We’ve got take each game as it comes and it’s re­ally im­por­tant that we con­tinue to im­prove each week, es­pe­cially as we have a small, young squad.

“Hart­pury will un­doubt­edly be a tough test for us but I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing how we’ve grown since last week­end.”

Nottingham Rugby are also look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing more than 800 play­ers and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cal clubs across Not­ting­hamshire to The Bay on Sun­day.
