Coventry Rugby returns to Butts Park Arena for the first time in three weeks tomorrow afternoon to play Nottingham in the final Greene King IPA Championship match of 2019.
Andy Forsyth – who has played eight times for Leicester Tigers in the Premiership, Premiership Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup while on loan at Welford Road this season – makes his Coventry Rugby debut on the right wing, with David Halaifonua, Will Maisey, Tom Kessell, James Gibbons, Phil Boulton, James Voss and Luke Wallace all returning to the starting line-up.
Jack Ram misses the game due to a knee injury sustained during the week which will rule the flanker out for the next few weeks.
