Catchpole and Price Looking Forward to Munster Test

George Catchpole and Tom Price, both dual registered players with Premiership giants Leicester Tigers, are both keen to make amends for the recent defeat to Ealing on Sunday, by putting in a good performance away at Munster in the British and Irish Cup.

 

Catchpole Vs Ealing

Nottingham Rugby travel to Munster knowing that a win will keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the Quarter Finals. It is Catchpole's first season with the Green and Whites and, at just 19 years old, he is relishing the opportunity to play Championship rugby. "I feel very fortunate at such a young age to be playing Championship rugby and gain valuable first team experience," said Catchpole.

Back in October, the Green and Whites just missed out to Friday night's opponents, as Munster scored with the last play of the game to snatch victory.

However Catchpole feels the team has the confidence and ability to get the victory this time around.

 "I'm looking forward to the game, it will be a good experience and we were so close to beating them back at Meadow Lane.  It's important we stay switched on for the full 80 minutes, don't give them anything easy and make sure when we get into attacking areas on the pitch we come away with points," explained Catchpole.

Tom Price, Catchpole's team mate at both Nottingham Rugby and Leicester Tigers, shares Catchpole's excitement for the trip to Munster.

"It will be a tough test but one we are looking forward to. We want to get back to winning ways. We have the belief we can do it, we just need to ensure our accuracy is high and we continue to work hard," explained Price.

 

Price Against Welsh

 

The big second row, now in his second season with the Green and Whites, is enjoying his rugby and the experience of playing Championship rugby with Nottingham.

"It's great to get valuable game time and it's also nice to get exposed to different game plans and styles of play. The lads are a tight group and I am really enjoying playing with them all," said Price.

Nottingham Rugby head to Munster for a 7:30pm Kick off on Friday 10th January.

The next home game sees the Green and Whites take on Plymouth Albion on Saturday 18th January at Meadow Lane Stadium in the final group game of the British and Irish Cup.
