Rugby extravaganza on opening weekend


The opening weekend for Jersey's competitive rugby season is fast approaching, and the weekend of September 14/15th will not just be limited to the 1st XV kicking off their Greene King IPA Championship season at Sandy Park as the Athletic also swing into action at St. Peter.

The new look Jersey Athletic will run out for the first time in this season's Shield Competition on the Saturday against Richmond, whilst Ben Harvey's troops will be live on Sky Sports that Sunday in the opening double header of the 2013/14 league campaign. And JRFC are excited to announce that you have the opportunity to support both teams and have a meal with us from the comfort of the St. Peter Clubhouse.

On the Saturday JRFC will be serving a pre-lunch drink at 12.15, with a two course meal to follow from 13:00 as the Athletic prepare for a season in the national leagues. Tables upstairs in the clubhouse are still available and seat 10 people. Individuals are welcome to attend as well as groups and the meal will cost £15 per person. Supporters are also welcome to come along and watch the game from the clubhouse free of charge.

The following day, Sunday 15th September, Jersey's 1st team will be kicking off their Greene King IPA Championship campaign at Exeter against Plymouth Albion. Kick-off for the match will be 13:15, but dining opens at 12 noon as the Club are offering supporters a special start-of-season roast carvery. Your sumptuous meal will be followed by the chef's chosen desert for only £12.95 per person.

We hope supporters, members and all proud Jersey men alike will stick around and watch the match live on Sky Sports as Jersey go under the cameras for the first time ever. Hospitality tables can seat 10 people and are selling fast for this special occasion. Both individuals and groups are welcome to book.
