Jersey prepare to face Bath


Summer signings Paula Kaho and Jason Thomas are set to make their first appearances for Jersey in the pre-season clash with Bath at St Peter tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).

Tongan international number 8 Kaho and South African hooker Thomas are both on the bench for the Islanders, while three of last season's squad are set to play their first rugby of 2014/15 after being named in the starting XV: the half-back pairing of Nicky Griffiths and Aaron Penberthy, plus David Bishop at centre.

Harvey Biljon has named a squad of 25 for the match against the Premiership visitors, with the team once again captained by Ryan Hodson while Alex Rae completes his recovery from injury.
