Courtesy of Nottingham Rugby Heritage Group, statistics were taken from Nottingham Rugby’s twenty-one games in the 19/20 season before it was cut short in March.
The statistics, which reveal the number of appearances and points scored for each player from across both league and cups games in the 19/20 season, are broken down below.
First Team Appearances
The two forwards, Oisin Heffernan and Llewellyn Jones, featured in every game (twenty-one matches) for Nottingham Rugby across the duration of the season. Luke Cole (twenty matches) and Luke Peters (nineteen matches) only missed out on a minority of fixtures. Both Alex Dolly and Seko Sio also featured in all seven of Nottingham’s cup games.
An additional eighteen games played for Murray McConnell last season brought his career total to an almighty one-hundred-and-twenty-three matches. Not far behind, Josh Poullet had another busy season with sixteen games, which lifted his career total to ninety-six matches.
The 19/20 season also saw Alfie Barbeary and Ifereimi Boladau receive their debut first-team appearances.
