Jersey squad to face Leeds at St. Peters07/03/2014
New signing Ryan Hodson will make his debut for JRFC starting at 7 in Saturday's Greene King IPA Championship fixture against a dangerous visiting Leeds team.
In the front row, Jon Brennan switches with Nick Selway in returning to the starting line up. Meanwhile, Sean McCarthy comes back in at loosehead in place of Sam Lockwood, who is unable to play against his former club as per his loan agreement. The rest of the pack remains unchanged from last week's losing bonus point clash at Pirates.
In the half backs, Nicky Griffiths switches with Jimmy Williams to start at 9 and is to be partnered by Aaron Penberthy, once again given the nod to marshal an increasingly settled backline.
Tom Fidler makes his comeback to 1st team rugby on the bench following injury layoff, the end of which was marked by a rampant display for Jersey Athletic last week. Elsewhere, Niall O'Connor will be conspicuous by his absence but Joel Dudley returns to the fray as backs cover.
