Reds take on Russia

Jersey Reds are to take on Russia in Moscow later this month as part of preparations for Rugby World Cup 2019.

The match on Tuesday August 27th is possibly the first "International" that Jersey habe been involved in and was brought about thanks to a link between Lyn Jones, the former Wales flanker who is Head Coach of the Bears, and his son Luc, a scrum-half who joined the Reds this season.

Harvey Biljon said: “We were very interested in the prospect of a historic fixture for the club straight away, although there were lots of details that needed to be finalised in a short time. With a lot of hard work on both sides, and a real will by all involved to make this happen, we have been able to confirm the trip. It’s going to be a massive challenge for our players, but one that we believe will be a great experience for them and play a major part in getting the squad ready for the forthcoming season.”

Jersey Reds will played their opening pre-season match on Saturday August 17th against English National 1 opponents Old Elthamians, running in 6 tries in a rather one sided affair, with OE's putting up some stiff opposition, but being overrun by the fitness of the Championship squad.

The first competitive match of the season will see the Reds host Newcastle Falcons for a Championship Cup match at Stade Santander International on Saturday September 21st.

The Greene King IPA Championship kicks off three weeks later on Saturday October 12th, with the Reds hosting Coventry

Is anyone travelling for this the one? I can't find a route that's achievable in less than 3 days.

Sadly not. Only 1 non-player coach is going and the logistics/cost of getting there were prohibitive...

That's a shame, I looked at driving it, but it's a looking way. Need at least 4 and a minibus.

If the stream is happening, please let is know.

Should be a great event, guys. Many moons ago, when Carnegie did not frequent the food bank, we played Romania as a pre RWC warm-up match at Headingley. It ended in an exciting draw.

Happy with that performance. Defence looked strong. Much better than against OEs
