Penberthy returns to The Mennaye to face former club
Finally making the long anticipated comeback from injury, Jersey fly-half Aaron Penberthy is given the nod over Niall O'Connor and will be joined by a sizeable contingent of former Pirates returning to face their old club in Sunday's Greene King IPA Championship clash with the Cornish Pirates. (KO 3pm).
Jersey, 11th in the Championship table, will be seeking to extend the points buffer between themselves and bottom place Ealing and make it a league double over the men from Cornwall in the fourth and final encounter of the season between the two clubs. The game will no doubt be given an extra dimension of intrigue as Harvey Biljon returns as an adversary to The Mennaye.
Nick Selway is handed his first league start of the season in place of injured Dave Young, with Sam Lockwood partnering him in the front row in favour of Sean McCarthy. The rest of the starting line-up remains unchanged from the postponed Plymouth game two weeks ago. The Jersey faithful will once again welcome the presence of evergreen prop Jon Brennan on the replacements' bench.
