Coventry Rugby has announced its squad for the final home fixture of the season, against Nottingham on Saturday 22nd April.

Following last weekend’s victory away at Richmond, Alex Rae’s men return home looking for a win in front of a final, bumper BPA crowd.

The front row remains unchanged from the trip to the Richmond Athletic Ground, with Suva Ma’asi packing down either side of Toby Trinder and Ollie Andrews.

In the engine room James Tyas partners Adam Peters, whilst the back row consists of Tom Ball, Josh Bainbridge and Senitiki Nayalo, who returns from Army duty at number 8.

Senior Academy fly-half Theodore Mannion will make his first start for the club, having made his debut off the bench last week, and will link up with the experienced Will Chudley.

In the centres, Will Rigg will wear the 12 shirt whilst Will Wand slots-in at 13.

The matchday XV is rounded out by a familiar backfield trio of James Martin, Will Talbot-Davies and Louis Brown at fullback.

Three front row replacements will be looking to add some firepower from the bench in the form of Will Biggs, James Kenny and Jake Bridges, whilst George Smith and Rhys Thomas will provide cover for the rest of the pack.

In the backs, Will Lane will be looking to make an impact as replacement 9, whilst Evan Mitchell and Tobi Wilson will provide creative cover at fly-half and fullback.
