Throwing down the gauntlet

Sport | Published:

AS expected, Jersey's director of rugby Ben Harvey has made sweeping changes to his starting line-up for Friday night's vital RFU Championship clash with Doncaster Knights.

Jersey travel to Yorkshire planning to field a XV that has eight changes in personnel to the team that started against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday.

'There have been some difficult calls in selection,' admitted Harvey. 'Some players really put their hands up against Newcastle, such as the starting props, and deserve another chance, but I've also got some players who've been in great form this season, such as (Guy) Thompson and (Michael) Le Bourgeois, who I wanted to get back into the side.
