Irish theme to mark Jersey v Leinster03/12/2014
On Saturday Jersey take on Leinster at St Peter in the British & Irish Cup. The Leinster 'A' team are the current holders of the B&I and the clash with Jersey could set up a quarter-final place for the winners. There'll be a special Irish theme, including music, food, reduced entry, and Guinness!
Jersey will be looking to unseat the holders in this pool 5 match - the Islanders have never beaten Leinster before, although we came within just four points of doing so on their last visit to the Island in December 2012. A win for the Reds, who have plenty to prove after a disappointing display against Plymouth Albion last Friday, would set up a final weekend decider to decide who progresses to the quarter-final.
Lunch will be available from 12noon in the marquee in the main car park as follows:
• Traditional Irish roast
• Cheese board
Cost: £12 per person (vegetraian option available)
To secure your place, bookings should be made in advance to Sean Dunne on 499929 (Ext. 1) or email Sean
The bars in the Barclays Pavilion and the marquee will be open with a full range, but it's the Black Stuff that's on special, with Guinness £3 a pint all day.
Besides the match and a half-time demonstration of Gaelic Football, the excellent Irish band Fiddler's Green will be playing in the Clubhouse after the match - all are welcome upstairs after the final whistle.
Wear an Irish rugby shirt, or bring your Irish passport or Jersey Irish Society membership card and you can get admission on the gate for £10 (normal price for non-members is £15). Students are £5 and under 18s are free.
Standard tickets priced £15 for adult non-members may be bought online from JT Rewards, or in person at JRFC during opening hours, the JEP at Five Oaks, Red Properties in St Helier or the Lamplighter pub in Mulcaster Street, St Helier.
Gates open 12noon, last lunch sitting 2pm, kick-off 3pm, post-match festivities from 5pm
Please note there will be no pre-match function in the Pavilion this Friday; this regular event will resume on Friday December 19th, the night before our match with Yorkshire Carnegie.
