JERSEY RFC, five points behind the joint leaders but six points ahead of fourth-place club Hertford in London Division I go into tomorrow’s game against Sutton and Epsom at St Peter hoping to emulate their last result, an 46-86 win at North Walsham.
‘Coming off the back of our defeat against Barnes, I was pleased by the boys’ attitude against North Walsham and I’d hope it continues again on Saturday,’ he said. ‘But I’m taking nothing for granted. We take every game as it comes and I’m not even thinking about the Siam Cup. But the boys were enthused last week and I’m choosing a largely unchanged team, although Sutton won’t be as easy to play against this time, compared to our last game against them. They had players out of their side through injury at their place and recently they’ve ground out some decent results.’
They have, too: their latest being a 31-29 win over Tring. However, although Harvey keeps virtually the same squad of players he used in last week’s game, with the only two changes being made from the bench, his whole approach between now and the end of the season is looking to the future.
