The first ever men's First XV, captured on camera at the start of the 1919-20 season
Wearing the Green and Gold is about so much more than just pulling on a jersey. Every student who does so becomes part of the fabric of the University’s illustrious sporting history.
The 2019/20 season marks a hugely significant milestone as our rugby club celebrates its centenary. From the stewardship of the first ever captain D.L. Nicholas, to today’s President Lawrence Davies, the club’s tradition is rich. Nottingham’s proud rugby heritage has contributed to the development of world-class rugby players; from the iconic Brian Moore, England caps Ron Jacobs and Nick Preston, and more recently Tim Streather and Chris Wyles.
The centenary season is about all of you, the thousands who have worn the Green and Gold. Whether for just one game or many, the experience of being part of the team makes a significant contribution to who you have become today.
