Nottingham Rugby assistant Coach and Head of Rugby at NTU, David Ross says “We believe that our pathway is amongst the best in the UK at transitioning players from university rugby through to the Championship and beyond and you only have to look at the numbers of current/former NTU students in Nottingham’s squad as evidence of this. This pathway was forged long before I arrived with Neil Fowkes and Alex O’Dowd bringing a significant number of players through to play in The Championship and I am delighted to be able to continue the trend.”
“All aspiring players should strongly consider joining NTU for the opportunities we offer it’s students to be attached to a Championship club and at the same time study for their degree.”
