Guess the attendance - Jersey

GUESS THE CROWD COMPETITION BROUGHT FORWARD TO REOPEN THE SITE

On Sunday 8th April, following an Easter rest weekend, we host Jersey Reds. Should be an interesting match as they scored 76 points in their last match, whereas our defence kept Bristol try-less at Ashton Gate the same weekend. I expect a fully-motivated performance as Jersey are now above Carnegie in the table and the players seem keen to impress our new Director of Rugby and win contracts for next season. Perhaps we can also hope for a fully-motivated crowd at Emerald Headingley Carnegie stand?

Our last scheduled home game was called off, therefore all bets are null and void and stakes returned. I normally score nul points each week so it doesn't make much difference to me, but whenever the game is actually played we will resubmit our guesses.

Obviously the table has not changed from the previous article, so I will be lazy and not recreate it again.

So, time for the Almo (normally fruitless) guess. I will go for 1854, I think it was the cubic capacity of a Saab I used to own, but anyway that number has sprung up in my head.

 

Please post your more considered guesses below.

As its streamed live by the RFU I suspect many will watch at home but I am coming up for the match anyway and predict attendance of 1227.

Don't kick it pick it up and GO FORWARD

Jersey have lost some local power with James Voss moving to Tiggers this week Almo but I'm ever hopeful of giving your lads a decent match next week. My flight to Donny airport on that Sunday has been put back to now arrive at 13.20 so don't start without me. Is there still car parking at the South/West side of the ground?

Yes, at the end of St Michael's Lane, entrance last right before the railway bridge with traffic lights. It operates on a first-come-first-served basis, not sure if it gets full.

Can anyone else advise?

Thanks Almo - my brother-in-law is picking me up at Donny Airport and we will be pegging it up the motorway but its bound to be just before 3pm when we get there so we will be trying to get as near the ground as possible. The flight was originally due to land at 11.30am which was ideal but I still reckon we will be on time.

Don't kick it pick it up and GO FORWARD

Hope you made the game in time CC. BTW, was that you singing "we pay less tax than you" half way through the second half?

Hornchurch, I was advised that I had "pinched" your prediction, so I added 1 to make 1501.

Doubt it made much difference to either if us........!

Hello

You are correct John R, not a halfpenny worth of difference looking at the very low score.

Corporal Carrot has sent me a message via Rolling Maul to say that he is alive and well and arrived in time to see the whole of the match. For some reason, he is unable to post on this site himself now.

He also mentioned that videos of the live streams are available to watch again on the Championship Rugby website, should anyone want to catch up or just see how it looks. Be warned, however, that it did involve Dewi Morris.
