Captain Calladine

Saturday's British and Irish Cup clash saw Nottingham Rugby with a new leader for the game. With Green and White captain Brent Wilson rested, allowing him to freshen up for the upcoming Greene King IPA Championship games, Tom Calladine was given the armband for the day.

Calladine, who came through the ranks at Mansfield RFC before joining the Nottingham Rugby Academy and forcing his way into the Nottingham Rugby first team, captained both Mansfield RFC at the tender age of 19 and England U16s.

Speaking about the experience of leading the Green and Whites out in front of the Meadow Lane faithful, Calladine said, "It's an honour to captain any team and it's special when it's Nottingham, especially at home in front of our supporters at Meadow Lane."

Speaking about the game itself, Calladine explained, "We always set out to play for the full 80 minutes, which we did today. It was the discipline that let us down, but we kept going and played to the final whistle but unfortunately, we left ourselves with too much to do in the second half."

Next up for Nottingham Rugby is an away trip to Bedford Blues on Saturday 25th January, before Friday Night rugby returns to Meadow Lane when the Green and Whites welcome London Scottish on 31st January.
