Fly half Mugford, 22, has had a strong season for Plymouth, proving adept at playing at number 10 and covering at full back when required.  The former England Counties and Exeter Chiefs Academy player has scored 73 points this season including three tries.

Commenting on the move Mugford said, "I'm very excited to be joining a club that has been competing at the top of the Championship for many years.  Obviously this season has been challenging but I'm hoping that the club will be back where they belong next year and that I can help them do that.

"Nottingham have one of the strongest forward packs in the league so as a fly half that is exciting for me, particularly as I like to play running rugby.  Having that platform will hopefully enable me to get the outside backs firing and scoring tries.

"Being a Devon boy, it was a hard decision to leave Plymouth.  I've had a great time at the club and a good season, but the opportunity to play at fly half week in, week out was too good an opportunity to turn down."

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag is looking forward to working with Mugford and said, "Dan is a young lad who is still learning the game but has lots of potential.  Hopefully, together with some other back line additions we will be able to build on our attacking game next season and Dan will be an important part of the jigsaw.

"Dan likes to attack the gain line, has a good boot on him and brings those outside him into the game.  He likes to boss the game and will be a valuable asset on and off the pitch with his leadership qualities.  He played at 10 against us in the British and Irish Cup this season and did well and I'm sure that he will prove to be an excellent addition to the squad."

Nottingham Rugby are back in action on Sunday 30th March as they welcome Leeds Carnegie to Meadow Lane in the Championship.  Tickets are available by calling 0115 9070070.
