Team announced to face Moseley


The significance of Jersey's forthcoming home clash against
Moseley has been thrown in to sharp perspective following a
disappointing result away to Ealing last Friday. Harvey Biljon has
responded accordingly with six changes to the starting line up.

Moseley are currently sitting in a comfortable 8th
position in the table, nine points ahead of Jersey. The two teams
last met in late December in what were torrid conditions. Despite
the proximity to Christmas, Jersey - under the stewardship of Steve
Boden at the time, derived little festive cheer as they narrowly
lost, salvaging a losing bonus point in a low scoring game. The
return fixture on Saturday, being the penultimate home fixture of
the season and also a charity day in conjunction with Macmillan
Cancer Support, promises to be a full house at St. Peter,
reminiscent of last year's crunch match against Doncaster.

In the pack, Sam Lockwood switches with Sean McCarthy at
loosehead with Nick Selway replacing an injured Dave Young at
tighthead. Skipper Alex Rae, having been standing in at blindside
recently, moves back to a more familiar position in the second row.
In the backrow, Joe Buckle is given the nod at openside and Latu
Makaafi switches from 8 to the blindside making room for Ben
Maidment, try scorer at Plymouth, who is handed his first start
since early January, as he makes a steady return to the fray.

In the backs, Jimmy Williams switches with Nicky Griffiths at 9,
Mark McCrea is moved to the left wing with Dai Bishop coming in to
the starting line up at 12.

The bench reverts to a 5:2 split with call ups for Jon Brennan
and Tom Brown, both of whom will be raring to go having had limited
involvement of late.
