We have now managed to reschedule the inter-squad games from a couple of weeks ago, and the details you need are as follows:
When: Thursday 05 April
Where: Nottingham University AGP Pitch
Time: Meet from 18:00 with kick-off at 19:00
Format: 3 x 20 minutes 15-a-side games. Full contact
What you will need: Shorts & Socks/Protective clothing in case of bad weather/towel/change of clothes/hydration
The Nott’m Uni. site is located at:
David Ross Sports Village
0115 9515 405
We will play the 3 sessions with a view to seeing how players perform in a match situation with the intention of assessing:
Body shape in contact
Identification and exploitation of space
Following this session, we will probably be reducing the total number of players in the Squad as we have duplications in several positions and the revised Squad will be posted on the NLD site.
This is our first opportunity to see players in a live match situation and you should look to build on the impressions you have made at training so far to give yourselves the best chance of making further progress.
Those players who are taken forward will then participate in a match against East Midlands U17’s at Newark RFC on Sunday 08 April. Kick-off will be 14:30 on that day.
If anyone is unable to make the session, please advise Lee Slack as soon as possible.
Equally, you should give thought to your rugby participation during that week. If you can manage your involvement at club/school level to ensure you are as fit and ready as possible, it can only enhance your chances of success at this elevated level of the game.
We look forward to watching you all perform to your best potential next week – this is where it really starts!
