Nottingham Rugby will face Irish, Welsh and Championship opposition once again, as the fixtures for this season’s British & Irish Cup competition were announced today.
The Green and Whites have been drawn in Pool 1 and will face home and away fixtures against Ospreys Premiership Select and Bedford Blues, alongside a mouth-watering double-header, with the current cup holders Munster ‘A’.
Nottingham Head Coach Ian Costello, along with no fewer than five of his current squad, are set to face their former club, first travelling across the Irish Sea on the weekend of 20th October, with the return match then taking place on Friday 12th January (7:45pm kick-off), at Lady Bay.
Kicking off the competition at home, against Bedford Blues, on Sunday 15th October (3:00pm), the Green and Whites also face back-to-back games against Ospreys, hosting the Welshmen on Sunday 10th December (3:00pm), before making the journey to South West Wales the following weekend (venue, date and kick-off time TBC).
Costello’s men will then hope a quarter-final place will have already been sealed, or can be sealed at Goldington Road, in the final round of pool games, on Saturday 20th January (2:00pm kick-off).
