Rupert Cooper has put pen to paper to sign a new deal
with Nottingham Rugby to become the latest player to commit their
future to the club.
The all action flanker, who has made 52 appearances for the
Meadow Lane club, has been a key component in the back row for the
Green and Whites for the last two seasons, with his swashbuckling
style of play making him a firm fan's favourite.
Cooper, 26, said, "Nottingham has become my home now and I've
really enjoyed my tenure here. Everyone says it, but there is
a great bunch of lads at the club who you want to be around and
want to play for. That was a big contributory factor in my
decision to sign.
"The coaching team are top class and you can see that a strong
core squad is being built and retained which breeds
confidence. I was injured for a few months earlier this
campaign so I'm determined to make amends, come back better and
help get Nottingham back up to where we should be in the
Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag commented, "Rupert is a very
honest player who wears his heart on his sleeve and gives
everything he's got every time he goes on the field. He leads
out our defence and brings a lot of intensity to that side of our
game. He's an excellent member of the squad, on and off the
pitch and I'm really pleased that he's staying with us next
