No Champ game in Jersey this w/e but, as pledged before, Coventry have opted to maintain their travel plans and make a w/e of it. It'll be great to see them & the support for amateur rugby at this end is hugely appreciated.

Details of their itinerary, for anyone interested:

Cov showing their class! Do you think this will this set a precedent for other clubs who already have their flights booked?

Totally humbled by this act. Looking forward to see everyone associated with Coventry, just a shame that the weather may not be as welcoming!!
Safe travels peeps, a warm welcome awaits you.

Sunshine & showers Brizz, F4 breeze - doesn't sound too bad, & a damn sight better than the mingin' conditions today with F6/7 & near-constant rain...

Could be a bumper crowd for a level six match. Salisbury RFC may be in for a new experience. Is the clubhouse open for viewing the RWC semi finals?

Yes definitely, loads of Blues fans have kept their flights and accommodation and will be there on 17/18/19 Nov.  We were hoping for a match to watch but Jersey RFC team are away Newbury.

Sadly yesterday was one of the few days when a scheduled Reds' home game clashed with a Jersey RFC home game - a deliberate attempt so that there'd be a home game most weekends. And now it's too late to juggle the calendar around. Outside chance our women may have a home game that w/e, which would provide a chance to convene, have a beer and watch rugby - will update if/when confirmed.

Back to yesterday, a really good club day & great to see friends from Cov. They trained in the AM, then had a run-around with some of our junior players, then stayed for lunch & team-bonding while others enjoyed JRFC 50 Salisbury 15, then a good crack in the clubhouse afterwards. Thanks to Cov for their support... the spirit of rugby!
