Jersey looking to unseat Rotherham

01/11/2013

Jersey seek to unseat high-flying Rotherham
 
A reshuffled back-line is the main feature of the Jersey squad for the Greene King IPA Championship clash with Rotherham at Clifton Lane on Saturday (k-o 2pm).

Aaron Penberthy starts at full-back, while Grant Pointer switches to the centre to partner Drew Locke, with Mark McCrea switching to right wing.

The pack has a more settled appearance, with just one change from the unit who started against Plymouth last Saturday: Dave Felton comes in at hooker in place of Elvis Taione.

Jersey's bench includes young hooker Luke Stratford, who could make his Championship debut, and former Rotherham scrum-half Jimmy Williams.

/*STOP PRESS, SATURDAY 10AM*/

A calf injury has forced David Bishop out of the Jersey squad for today's match.

Bishop's place among the Jersey replacements is taken by the experienced Mark Foster, who first played against Titans in a Premiership match at Millmoor in 2004 when wearing the colours of Gloucester. Foster, 30, also played against Rotherham during his stints with Moseley and Exeter Chiefs.
