Cardall makes Championship debut for Nottingham Rugby

NTU Rugby scholar, Tim Cardall made his Championship debut for Nottingham Rugby this weekend.

NTU Rugby scholar, Tim Cardall, made his Championship debut for Nottingham this weekend.

Cardall is in his first year at Nottingham Trent, studying BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science, whilst training with the Championship side.

Before joining Nottingham this year, Cardall played for Northampton Saints U18’s, and then was offered his first professional contract in March 2015.

Following two unfortunate injury setbacks during this season, Cardall was named on the bench for the fixture against league leaders, London Irish on Sunday. Joining him in the squad were fellow NTU scholars Callum Hall (wing), David Williams (wing) and Josh Poullet also on the bench.

The flanker was called to action earlier than he would have expected, due to an injury on 27 minutes to second row, Toby Freeman. Unfortunately for Cardall, his debut didn’t end in a win, as London Irish continued their unbeaten form to storm to a 60 – 14 win. However, the NTU student will be hoping that he can build on this performance and push on for Nottingham for the rest of the season.

Cardall also has some huge games coming up for the NTU Men’s Rugby first team, as they fight for promotion to BUCS Super Rugby. Currently sat seven points clear at the top of North A with three games to go, promotion is a very realistic prospect for the men in pink.

Their next fixture is on Wednesday 8 February against Durham, who are in third place as it stands. Kick-off is at 2 pm at Lady Bay.
