Learn the Lessons and Show Character

NOTTINGHAM Rugby head coach Martin Haag has named an unchanged line-up for tomorrow's meeting with Jersey.

Despite last week's loss to London Scottish, the Green and Whites' first defeat in seven matches in all competitions, Haag's faith in the side is unshaken.

"We have to learn from that and come back and show the right character when we go down to Jersey," Haag said.

"This season we have shown some good character to come through in games and we have seen some exciting rugby from this side, but we didn't see any of that at the weekend.

"Sometimes you come off the rails, but it is about how fast you get back on track and move forward.

"We are about winning and are not interested in talking about losing or having that as an option. Winning is a habit that we have to keep going to stay in the top four."

Andrew Savage gets his second start at full-back since returning from injury after more than two months.

David Jackson, who marked his return to the wing with the only try against the Exiles last week, retains his spot with Rhys Crane still unable to train this week because of injury.

"We all know what has to be done to put that last result right and that is by delivering on Saturday," Haag said.

"Our first trip to the island is going to be an occasion, and we expect a big crowd, great atmosphere and that a tough battle is waiting for us."

Nottingham Rugby team to face Jersey on Saturday, February 16 (3.00pm kick-off): 15 Andrew Savage 14 Alex Lewington 13 Tim Streather 12 Joe Munro 11 David Jackson 10 James Arlidge 9 Sean Romans 1 Matt Parr 2 Joe Duffey 3 Michael Holford 4 Dan Montagu 5 Nic Rouse 6 Rupert Cooper 7 Brent Wilson 8 Alex Shaw.
