Championship rugby returns to the Athletic Ground this Saturday as Richmond go head to head with Nottingham in Round 2 of the 2021/22 season (kick-off 3pm).
Richmond will be determined to get back to winning ways following a hard-fought 33-18 defeat to Cornish Pirates last Saturday in Penzance. Featuring a number of new recruits, including former London Scottish captain Mark Bright and ex Scarlets and Bath back Will Homer, Richmond delivered a strong performance against the top four favourites, scoring two electric tries and withstanding a barrage of Pirates attack.
Richmond Director of Rugby said post-game: "We showed in patches how dangerous we can be, both in attack and defence. I was pleased with how well we battled in the last quarter and we're confident we can continue improving and deliver a positive response in front of our home fans this Saturday against Nottingham."
