Cooper Signs on the Dotted Line

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.

Coops New Deal 

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 league."

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 season."
