Nottingham Rugby ready for final home match of the season

PUBLISHED:

It’s the final home match of the season at The Bay tomorrow evening and Nottingham will look to round of their campaign in style against one of the league’s toughest opponents.

The Green and Whites are riding high off the back of an incredible win against Coventry last week and Neil Fowkes is pushing his side to end their season in strong form.

Top point scorer Shane O’Leary’s drop goal halted Nottingham’s run of losses and has set up an exciting end to the season.

Despite the victory last weekend, Nottingham were hit with a couple of injuries that have forced some changes for the side.

Speaking ahead of the game, Head Coach Neil Fowkes said: “I’d like to thank all of our fans this year who have travelled home and away to support us.

“It’s our last home match at The Bay for a few months and the lads are looking to put in a performance that fans will be proud of.

“I’m expecting a fantastic free-flowing game in great conditions tomorrow. Jersey are a great side and their league position reflects that, so it’ll be a close one.”
