Six Tiger Cubs in Loan Action

Six members of Tigers Development Squad are out in loan action this weekend as they seek to broaden their experiences and force their way into Richard Cockerill's first team squad.

In the Greene King IPA Championship Nottingham have named 4 Tigers players in their squad that travels to Rotherham.  The Green 'n' Whites suffered cut backs over the summer and are languishing in 9th place, whilst home side Rotherham are riding high in 3rd.

Ryan Bower starts at loosehead with Javiah Pohe and Henry Purdy in the backs.  Pohe starts at inside centre and Purdy on the right wing.  Recent Tigers Man of the Match Harry Thacker is on the bench and will make his league debut if used.

Also named are former Tigers Michael Holford, Dan Montague and Brent Wilson in the pack; with half back pairing Finlay Barnham and Rory Lynn also spending time at the Oval Park academy.

In SSE National League 1 table toppers Doncaster travel to St.Albans to face Old Albanians.  Italian Tighthead prop Tiziano Pasquali starts his second consecutive game as the Yorkshire men try to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

New loan signing Lucas Guillaume is named on a 5 man bench.  Not named in the squad but announced as signing Dual Registration terms this week was Riccardo Brugnara.  The Italian has played all across the front row but is primarily a loosehead prop.  

One other stand out name in the Doncaster side is Tigers legend Darren "Dazzler" Morris.  Morris played 75 times for the club between 2003 and 2006.  The 39 year old is still going strong after a recent 9 game spell with Kuban Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League.
