Jersey confirm line-up for Exiles


Jersey Head Coach Harvey Biljon has confirmed his squad for the crucial Greene King IPA Championship clash with London Scottish, which takes place at 2pm on Saturday at St Peter.

The Islanders' last home match of the season is one they must win to ensure that, at worst, they maintain their lead over relegation rivals Ealing Trailfinders, who are in action an hour later at Brickfields in Plymouth.

Jersey's starting pack includes the return of skipper Alex Rae, who missed last weekend's clash with London Welsh - the first league game he's missed this season - and James Voss who was on the bench. The duo replaced Joe Buckle and Dave Markham, who revert to the bench.

In the backs, Nicky Griffiths and David Bishop are selected to start, with Mark McCrea switching to the wing and Drew Locke dropping to the bench. Also named as front row cover among the replacements are Jersey's longest-standing player, tight-head prop Jon Brennan, and the youngest member of the squad, 19-year-old hooker Luke Stratford.

Jersey will be looking to avenge a 29-3 defeat at the Richmond Athletic Ground last November.
