Current NTU student Ellis Mee and NTU graduates David Williams and Harry Graham all start in the back 3 for Nottingham in their Premiership Cup fixture away at Saracens this weekend. Ellis starts at full back, whilst David and Harry start on the Wings.

NTU graduate Michael Stronge also starts for Nottingham at scrum-half, whilst NTU graduate Josh Goodwin is named on the bench along with current NTU students Jay Ecclesfield and Ronnie Du-Randt.

The number of NTU students and alumni named in the Nottingham squad show the strength and importance of the pathway between the university and Nottingham Rugby.
