In what will be a first in rugby worldwide, the RFU Championship, the second tier of English professional rugby, will stream a game live on Twitter during the final weekend of league fixtures on Saturday April 20, in association with the Rugby Paper.

Continuing to bring supporters closer to the action, which game is streamed live through the social networking site will be chosen by public vote.

The final weekend of games offers up some fascinating encounters, with in form Nottingham facing a tough away trip to Leeds Carnegie, Newcastle - already guaranteed a place in the semi-finals - hoping to end the league stage without dropping a match,and Cornish Pirates seeing off the league stage with a visit from survival hopefuls Jersey.

RFU live streamSo the Green and Whites are calling on all supporters and @NottinghamRugby Twitter followers - which total nearly 6,000 on the popular social network site - to starting voting for their team.

Speaking about the new initiative, RFU Head of Digital Nick Shaw commented:

"This is another fantastic piece of innovation from the RFU Championship. The league offers us a real opportunity to get closer to the action and importantly, involve supporters throughout. Rather than us predict which game we think supporters will want to see, we've chosen to ask them directly, which is a first for the Union.

"In addition, the streaming on Twitter is a first in rugby worldwide, and in professional sport in the UK. "

So if you want to watch Nottingham make history simply visit www.RFU.com/FanVote and register your vote. The game with the highest number of votes will be streamed live via @RFUChampionship on Saturday April 20.
