The forecast is looking fabulous BTW. It has turned around from a stormy looking picture at the beginning of the week to one of day long sunshine, 13 or 14 degrees and a gentle southerly wind.
**Heavy caveat that this is an Island and there is still a decent chance of the game being played in a monsoon with hurricane force winds!!

Might not be making excuses, but Irish are favourites for every game this year, including this one. The size of the squad that they have and the quality of players is higher than other teams in the league (as well as a huge playing budget). No point in talking them down, Irish should win this game easily.
when you win say nothing, when you lose say less

Irish will be favourites for every game they play. That said they won't be favourites to go unbeaten for the season.

I think we'll have enough to win on Saturday, but it's certainly one of the games where we're more vulnerable and wouldn't be a huge shock if we lost.

On the positive side I think we'll be fielding a better pack than the one that lost over in Jersey last time.

From what I have seen of them If you don't let Irish kick to the corner they can't win the game - they don't seem to have many other skills & big fat men run out of steam too!!

Luke Pearce is a brilliant referee imo who has managed many Jersey games including their first ever win in the Championship against another Exile side in 2012. My records don't go back that far but I'm also pretty sure he has managed an even bigger match at St Peter about a decade ago in the Siam Cup match against Guernsey. He was probably still at school then but I'm pretty certain jersey won that match. Its bound to be a spiky match in the forwards but lets hope for good behaviour from both sides so that Mr Pearce can keep everyone on the pitch rather than warming the naughty bench.

Luke Pearce refereed the 2009 Siam Cup as part of learning the ropes at an early age - he was 21. If things go well this month (he's doing Wales v Australia, as well as one of the RWC qualification games) and in the 6N it seems he has every chance of being one of the referees in Japan this time next year...

Fingers crossed that he has a good game, but from what you have stated Islander, he certainly seems to have the right credentials to be a top official.

I'm hoping they find suitable accommodation in the Jersey 22...

In an effort to avoid a lack of accommodation following the issues that LI suffered in September, Jersey have installed bunk beds in all of the playing staffs homes with the idea that each player will take their opposite number home after games in the Island, thus guaranteeing the travelling players a bed for the night. Ironically, this initiative has coincided with the re-arranged game against LI and the Jersey players are said to be looking forward to continuing with the theme of the day adding that their guests will be on the bottom bunks.

Hope they don't mind sharing night before as I believe LI are flying home on Saturday night!!

I believe the 2pm kick off may indicate that the Irish lads are planning a day trip. The boat back to Portsmouth on Saturday goes at 19.05 and takes 11 hours & 25 mins!

Just completed my first meet & greet - a bunch of 5 Irish supporters heading into town and got them safely onto the No 15 bus with food & beer directions in the metropolis. I've got another mob arriving this afternoon & staying out here in St Ouens. The first Gatwick flight was absolutely mobbed so I hope we have a decent home support tomorrow or the locals could be outnumbered.

Just had a look at the highlights of the LI CP game on the LI website. I see what you mean about LI kicking to the corner. Their RM looks very impressive. They get it set, in a powerful position very quickly and is very hard to stop.
I know that there was only a few minutes of highlights, but there didn't seem to be much else. The 9 looks like a little terrier and I lost count of the number of missed tackles on him as he wriggled through for his score.
However, out wide LI look very vulnerable.

Discipline, discipline, discipline!

With the squad we have, that's a pretty ropey backline outside of 9&10. Macken also being injured would be the icing on the cake.
