Greens in cup action
NOTTINGHAM Rugby head coach Neil Fowkes will be hoping to build on last weekend’s victory when his team face Yorkshire Carnegie in the fifth round of the Championship Cup on Sunday at The Bay.
The Green and Whites kept their cup hopes alive when they beat Coventry 33-24 and, while they currently sit bottom of Pool 1, they could still progress if results go their way.
Shane O’leary returns to the side at fly-half, replacing Will Millett, following his return from international duty with Canada, who qualified for the Rugby World Cup after winning the repechage tournament in France.
Luke Peters also returns to the side at centre after being rested last week.
He is joined in the backs by Callum Sirker who will play on the wing.
In the pack, Aniseko Sio starts, replacing James Penman, with Mike Daniels returning to the side in the front row.
Fowkes said: “Yorkshire are a fantastic side who are gathering momentum with some new signings, they will undoubtedly be a tough test for us.”
