Toby Freeman Signs New Deal

Nottingham Rugby has secured the services of Toby Freeman for next season after he signed a new deal with the club.


Freeman, 26, arrived at Meadow Lane in January from Rotherham and has made a big impact at the club, on and off the pitch since he arrived.  He has quickly become a fan's favourite and is popular with his team mates too.

Commenting on the new deal Freeman said, "It's a really good feeling to have signed a new deal with the club.  It was a lucky break that I got to come here in the first place and its felt right ever since I arrived.

"It wasn't a difficult decision to sign.  The club has got ambition and a good set up, there is a great bunch of lads at the club and I've got a lot of time for the coaching team.  The club plays a brand of rugby that really suits my game and I enjoy it every time I go on the field.  Given all of that it would have been stupid to move on and I'm really looking forward to the season ahead."

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag said, "I'm very happy that Toby will be joining us on a permanent deal next season.  We spoke to him at the end of last season but at that time we weren't able to sort a deal out.  We obviously ended up with an opportunity for him to come in back in January and he's done fantastically well since he joined us.

"Toby is an excellent character to have around the place and he has integrated seamlessly with the squad.  He's very mobile and is exceptionally quick for a lineout forward.  His presence bodes well for the culture and ethos we're trying to develop here.  We're aiming to finish this season strongly and then to start next season with a bang and Toby will be a massive part of that.  It's great news for us."

Freeman's new deal follows the signings of Tongan international winger Viliame Iongi and promising fly half Dan Mugford.
