Jersey travel to Yorkshire this weekend looking to build on last
Saturday's win over Cornish Pirates.
Having defeated the Pirates 27-25 thanks to a late comeback at
St Peter, the Islanders will now look to get a second away success
of the season so far in the Greene King IPA Championship.
Director of Rugby Ben Harvey has unannounced a largely unchanged
squad for Sunday's game at Headingley. Jersey's starting pack will
be the same unit as lined up at kick-off against Pirates, while the
backs will be the seven who finished last weekend's game. This
means Jimmy Williams wears the number 9 shirt, while Mark Foster
(pictured below)plays at wing, with Grant Pointer and Nicky
Griffiths missing out.
Jersey's bench includes returns to the squad for Dave Markham,
Joel Dudley and Elvis Taione. Taione is due to play for Tonga
against Wales tonight (Friday) but Harvey expects him to be
available if required from the bench at Headingley.
The JRFC preview to the match will be published by Saturday
morning on www.jrfc.je
