Applications are still being taken for the Stratstone Land Rover Nottingham Rugby Academy trails on Monday 30th September 2019.  

The aim of The Academy is to provide an environment of quality training and playing experiences whilst playing a small number of games during the season against other high-quality opposition, with players continuing to play for their “home Clubs, Colleges and Universities.”

The trials will take place at Nottingham Rugby, 1 Holme Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 5AA from 7.00pm – 8.30pm.  

The Academy trains every Monday evening and plays a small number of games against Championship and Premiership Academies, with a large number of players representing their CB’s in the U18 and U20 programmes as well as opportunities into Nottingham Trent University and its University programme.  

The Academy has an excellent coaching team in place led by Steve McGinnis, with Alex Dolley, 1stXV scrum half, Nic Carroll and Adam Gallagher. Alongside S+C, Physio and video support.
