Arlidge and Kalamifoni back to bolster Nottingham
Nottingham welcome back James Arlidge and Sione Kalamafoni from World Cup duty Friday night after they represented Japan and Tonga respectively in the competition.

Both players saved their best performances for their countries matches against France in the pool stage and each received the man of the match award for their efforts.

Arlidge scored 21 points in Japan's heroic performance in the opening round of matches while Sione went one better as Tonga pulled off the result of the tournament so far to beat the French.

Their return to the starting line up tonight will give the Green and Whites a lift as they look to get back to winning ways.

Glenn Delaney is very pleased to have them back and said: "These two players have represented themselves, the club and their countries with distinction and we are very proud of them. I am looking forward to them playing at Meadow Lane again and I am sure the supporters will show their appreciation!"

The match against Cornish Pirates is bound to be a cracker and Nottingham will be hoping for a big crowd to welcome back the World Cup heroes and shout them on to victory.
