Knights side for Notts clash announced.
27th March 2015
DoR Clive Griffiths makes a hand full of changes from last week ahead of Nottingham’s visit to Castle Park.
In the backs George Catchpole returns from a run in the Leicester Tigers first XV to replace fellow Tiger Terrence Hepetema with Mat Clark moving to inside centre. Tongan duo Tomasi Palu and Ume Fosita continue in the half backs and it is a familiar looking back three of Jarvis, Flockhart and Lewis.
Upfront Clive has gone with the same tight five as last Friday and in the back row Michael Hills returns from illness to his usual position at open side flanker. Matt Challinor continues at six with Phil Eggleshaw promoted to the starting XV at number eight.
On the bench Tom Davies and WillGriff John join young Tiger Harry Thacker to provide front row cover. Will Foden is included in the match day twenty-two for the second successive week and will hope to make an impact from the bench. Bevon Armitage, Brad Field and Paul Roberts make up the back replacements and complete the squad.
