Gnr Senitiki Nayalo (7 Para RHA) and Pte Courtney Pursglove (RLC) are back on club duty this weekend in the Championship and Allianz Cup respectively.

Both players scored tries in their respective wins at Kingsholm last weekend, Gnr Nayalo getting the Army Senior Men’s first try and Pte Pursglove turning the Senior Women’s match the red shirts’ way with her first half double.

Gnr Nayalo returns to Butts Park Arena to start for Coventry in their final home match of the season.

The blue and whites host Nottingham, and while they are already confirmed with a third-place finish in the Championship table they will be seeking to continue their outstanding record on home turf, with just the one defeat at Butts Park Arena all season.

Gnr Nayalo is in the back row for the game and will no doubt also be looking to replicate his try scoring outing he enjoyed at Lady Bay back in December. Kick off is at 1500hrs.

By the time that match kicks off the Allianz Cup clash between Worcester and Sale Sharks will have been underway for an hour at Sixways.

Pte Pursglove will be at the stadium as one of the Sharks’ replacements and is set for her first action at this level since early December.

The winger grabbed the attention with her two outstanding tries against the Royal Air Force, which mirrored her two-try outing in the Allianz Cup earlier this season in a win over Wasps.

Sale finished fourth in their pool, which put them into the 5th-8th play-off semi-finals, and the winner of Saturday’s match will play the winner of Loughborough v Harlequins.

Saturday’s game at Sixways kicks off at 1400hrs.
