Jersey squad for Leeds challenge is announced


Jersey travel to Yorkshire this weekend looking to build on last Saturday's win over Cornish Pirates.

Having defeated the Pirates 27-25 thanks to a late comeback at St Peter, the Islanders will now look to get a second away success of the season so far in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Director of Rugby Ben Harvey has unannounced a largely unchanged squad for Sunday's game at Headingley. Jersey's starting pack will be the same unit as lined up at kick-off against Pirates, while the backs will be the seven who finished last weekend's game. This means Jimmy Williams wears the number 9 shirt, while Mark Foster (pictured below)plays at wing, with Grant Pointer and Nicky Griffiths missing out.


Jersey's bench includes returns to the squad for Dave Markham, Joel Dudley and Elvis Taione. Taione is due to play for Tonga against Wales tonight (Friday) but Harvey expects him to be available if required from the bench at Headingley.

The JRFC preview to the match will be published by Saturday morning on
