The National III South East table-toppers lost to the Hertfordshire side last season when, with only a few seconds to go and leading, they opted to play the ball instead of kicking it into touch, which would have immediately ended the game.
As it was they scrummed down, lost possession, and allowed the Bishops’ stand-off to run the length of the field before dropping a goal which won the home side the match.
But Jersey coach Ben Harvey is not interested in the past, but in 80 minutes of play tomorrow. And although he was delighted by the 73 points Jersey scored against Hayward’s Heath last weekend, he wants his squad to be better this week, and then better the next.
‘You set a standard and keep upping it,’ he said, adding that Jersey had still not managed to maintain 100 per cent commitment and concentration for ‘a whole 80 minutes.’
