Nottingham remain unchanged for Scottish
NOTTINGHAM Rugby head coach Martin Haag has named an unchanged side to face London Scottish at Meadow Lane tomorrow night (Friday, September 28, 1945 kick-off).

Haag has unwavering belief in the side that was beaten with the final play of the game against Bedford last week.

Having led until the 93rd minute of play, the Green and Whites did everything but leave Goldington Road with four competition points.

“Against Bedford there was terrific stuff out there and the game plan was bang on,” Haag said.

“The boys really put in a big stint in with the amount of energy that they brought into that match.

“I’m not one for making a load of changes, or changes just for the sake of it.

“Across the board there are players going well and what we need to do as a group is find consistency and perform well every week.”

And yet, Haag wasn’t without a headache at the selection table as his new-look Nottingham outfit continues to take shape.

“As a squad we are in a healthy situation, we have strong numbers training and there is vigorous competition for places,” Haag said.

“The motivation for this team and players is to get back to winning ways on Friday. All week they have been pushed in training to make sure that they are part of the 22 to make that happen.”
