Nottingham Rugby Confirm Four from Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Rugby has confirmed the addition of four players from Nottingham Trent University to their squad for the 2014/15 season.

Malloy Vs Ealing

Head Coach Martin Haag has bolstered his options with the signings of Alfie Malloy, Jacob Knight, Ben Brownlie and Josh Poullet.

Malloy enjoyed an encouraging first campaign with the Green and Whites last season, featuring regularly in the starting line-up in the back three or at outside centre.  When not starting he was named amongst the replacements with his versatility proving a valuable asset.

Knight was also a regular in the squad throughout the last campaign although injuries curtailed the level of his involvement for a portion of the season.  Again though, he was regularly named amongst the replacements and was impressive in his time on the pitch.

Haag said, "Jacob and Alfie have done really well in their first year with us and we look forward to seeing them grow further over the next year. They have both demonstrated a superb attitude to Nottingham Rugby and were involved in many games last season.  We saw them develop each time they took to the field and I'm sure we'll continue to see that development given the application they both put into their rugby."

Ben Brownlie joins the club looking to continue his development while making a positional change at the same time.

Haag commented, "Ben is changing from back row to hooker and will look to learn and develop his skills in this position. Ben has played a good standard at Cambridge and now sees Nottingham as the perfect place to progress his career whilst at University."

Poullet joins the club and will be competing for game time in the very competitive back row, where he will be battling against the likes of club captain Brent Wilson, new signing Paul Grant and stalwarts Tom Calladine and Rupert Cooper for a starting berth.

Haag continued, "Josh is another player to come through the Academy at Nottingham. He played very well at Leicester Lions and Trent University and will add options to our back row for next season.

"It's great news that we are continuing our strong partnership with the Universities in the city, in particular Nottingham Trent University, and we'd like to thank them for their continued support of our playing and coaching programme."
