Nottingham Head Coach Craig Hammond has named his Archers team to face Hartpury at The Bay for Round 3 of the Championship.

Toby Williams and Ben Betts are replaced by James Whitcombe and Josh McNulty respectively.

Hammo said: “They’re (Hartpury) a good team and they’re coached pretty well. They’ve made some good signings this year. They knocked over Cornish Pirates at the weekend and put a few points on the board too.

“They look really good so we know how powerful they’re going to be. They’re pretty strong up front and they can score some good tries as well.

“We’ve got to make sure we get our house in order because we didn’t finish the job off last week. It’s going to be another battle but it’s at home and we love playing here. We like getting the crowd involved and putting on a performance.”

Starting XV: 15 Jack Stapley, 14 David Williams, 13 Elliott Creed, 12 Charlie Thacker, 11 Joe Browning, 10 Sam Hollingsworth, 9 Michael Stronge, 8 Suvwe Obano, 7 Carl Kirwan, 6 Josh Poullet (CC), 5 Scott Hall, 4 Jack Ramshaw, 3 Josh McNulty, 2 Jake Farnworth (CC), 1 James Whitcombe.
