Jersey have nothing to lose – but glory to gain
Saturday 15th December 2012, 3:00PM GMT.
JERSEY’S squad land in Dublin on Saturday afternoon, looking to scupper Leinster plans to celebrate Christmas early with a brace of home wins in the Heineken and British & Irish Cups.
While most attention in the Irish capital is on today’s European clash with Clermont Auvergne – close to 50,000 spectators will be at the Aviva Stadium – Jersey’s focus will be their return match against Leinster A on Sunday.
The Islanders lost by four points at St Peter last weekend and looking for the revenge win that will maintain their hopes of qualifying for the B&I knock-out stages.
Leinster, meanwhile, will expect Pontypridd to move clear at the top of pool five with a home win over Leeds today and want to get back on terms with the Welsh side ahead of their meeting in Dublin in the next round.
