LI Squad for a potentially tough Friday night away to Nottingham. A fair bit of rotation from the Richmond game, but overall it's probably a slightly stronger starting 15. Gone for only one prop on the bench to make room for an extra back interestingly. 

London Irish: 15 Luke McLean, 14 Matt Williams, 13 Tom Stephenson, 12 Terrence Hepetema, 11 Ben Loader, 10 Stephen Myler, 9 Ben Meehan, 1 Gordon Reid, 2 Dave Porecki, 3 Ollie Hoskins, 4 Franco van der Merwe ©, 5 Teofilo Paulo, 6 Albert Tuisue, 7 Conor Gilsenan, 8 Matt Rogerson.

Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 Patric Cilliers, 18 Josh McNally, 19 Jake Schatz, 20 Scott Steele, 21 Brendan Macken, 22 Alivereti Veitokani

Injury troubles force changes for Nottingham

After a tough defeat to Jersey last week, Nottingham Rugby face the challenge of league leaders London Irish this Friday night at The Bay, kick off 7:45pm. 

Injuries decimated Neil Fowkes’ options at second row at the Stade Santander, with Llewelyn Jones and Sam Lewis forced to leave the field while club captain Tom Holmes, Danny Qualter and Seb Cecil are on the road to recovery.

Despite injury troubles, Nottingham welcome back hooker Ben Brownlie to the starting line-up and Sam Lewis, who was substituted half an hour after replacing Llewelyn Jones last weekend, also starts. Dual registered second row Devante Onojaife will join Lewis in the Green and Whites’ pack.

In the backs, Tom Varndell, the Premiership’s leading try scorer of all time, makes his Green and Whites home debut after starting in Jersey last weekend. 

Jack Spittle, who suffered a hamstring injury in Jersey, is replaced by David Williams on the wing while captain Darryl Veenedaal starts at scrum half. 
Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Neil Fowkes said: “Obviously we were really disappointed with the result against Jersey, we didn’t take our chances and discipline issues crept back into our performance, much like Coventry. 

“We have all worked hard this week on these elements of our game and the boys want to show a reaction this week at The Bay against the league leaders Irish. We know we will have to be at our best against a quality Irish side that have dominated the completion so far.”

Full side to face London Irish:

Ealing Trailfinders team to play London Scottish on Saturday 19th January at Trailfinders Sports Club in the Greene King IPA Championship: Much better selection this week. Lydon brings elusiveness and excellent kicking from tee and hand to the squad. Will Harries is excellent under the high ball, and is one of the most entertaining runners in the league. Lewis Jones and JCR always team up well, and Craig Willis is just the best Fly Half on the team. A bit surprised to see Lundberg over Els, but both played well. Good to see Ben Landry making a start again in the same week that he is announced in the USA squad for spring internationals. Overall, this is a much better balance of pace and push than last weekend's squad. I'm assuming that Jordy Reid is getting a well-deserved break, and hoping that he isn't being taken out of the squad due to any impending move or injury.

15 Peter Lydon 14 Will Harries 13 Lewis Jones 12 Harry Sloan 11 James Cordy Redden 10 Craig Willis 9 Ryan Foley 1 Alex Lundberg 2 Alun Walker 3 Mark Tampin 4 Ben West 5 Harry Casson 6 Ben Landry 7 Rohan O’Regan 8 Rayn Smid ©

Replacements: 

16 Matt Cornish 17 Jordan Els 18 Elliot Millar Mills 19 Jordan Onojaife 20 Max Davies 21 Jordan Burns 22 Laurence May

Reds and Blues go head-to-head at the Stade

With barely room for a cigarette paper between them in the Greene King IPA Championship table, Jersey Reds and Bedford Blues look set for a memorably close contest when they lock horns this Saturday.

The match-up at Stade Santander International, which will kick off at 2pm, features the sides equal third in the league on points, although the Blues have the higher ranking after amassing one more win thus far. The winner will claim third spot outright and stay in touch with league leaders London Irish - the Reds' next opponents - and second-placed Ealing Trailfinders.

The Blues are the form side in the Championship, having won their last six league matches in a run dating back to the start of October. Potentially the biggest achievement during this period was last Saturday's 23-18 home win over Ealing. They also won their home match against the Reds at the start of September by 26-22, and could bring up to five ex-Jersey players in their match-day squad: Alex Rae, Lewis Robling, Rich Lane, Sean McCarthy and Charlie Clare.

The hosts, who have launched a #RedsDay initiative encouraging their supporters to turn up in the team colour, are also going into the game on the back of an impressive win, recovering from an early nine-point deficit to score five tries defeat sixth-placed Nottingham 41-16.

Head Coach Harvey Biljon makes three changes to his starting XV. Two are in the backs, with Jason Worrall stepping up at wing after an injury to Koch Marx, and Aaron Penberthy coming in at fly-half for Brett Herron, who took a knock in training this week. And there's rotation in the front row, with Roy Godfrey starting and Harry Morley switching to the bench.

The Jersey replacements also include a potential debut for newly-signed scrum-half Liam Howley, and the return of Dave McKern and George Eastwell, the latter set for his first league action of an injury-affected season after featuring in two Championship Cup ties before Christmas.

The two matches between the Reds and the Blues in 2017/18 were contrasting affairs, both ending in away wins. Bedford took the honours at Stade Santander International, with Harry Sheppard and ex-Jersey wing Rich Lane scoring two second-half tries against one by Roy Godfrey to seal a 13-15 success. There were nine tries in the return match at Goldington Road, five of them scored by the Reds - Hardy, Selway, Van Breda and Hodson (2) - and the match finished 29-33. Overall in matches at this level, the Reds have won eight of the 13 games.

The match is part of a run of five home games in five weekends for the Reds, which will also include the Championship Cup quarter-final against Cornish Pirates on Saturday February 2nd and the league encounter with London Scottish on Saturday February 9th. Both games kick off at 2pm, with advance tickets and places for pre-match lunches now available via the Eventbrite site.

Nottingham 14-14 Irish 

About half an hour played. Sounds a very open game which I suspect will suit Nottingham.

that's a real shame that Nottingham couldn't win tonight. Irish are too far ahead now I suspect. think they'll get at least one more bloody nose this season though.

I don’t think we disgraced ourselves this evening- we battled right until the final whistle. Proud of the lads tonight- they put in a good shift. Special mention has to go to the first try scorer though (I may be a little biased as I am his sponsor ) but how often do you see a prop leg it 20 metres down the pitch to land a pretty special try....

Steps the cover as well. Some effort, although probably not one Ben Meehan would want to see again.

Apologies- corrected, I have severe dyscalculia so I struggle getting numbers right.
