Jersey Reds v Newcastle Falcons

Saturday 29th February - Stade Santander International 

 

 

Falcons will have to contend with some awful weather, very strong winds in the region of 50mph have been forecast, hail, rain and temperature of no more than 7º.   For those supporters travelling you will need your weatherproofs. However, high winds will not be allowed to blow Newcastle Falcons’ promotion charge off-course at Jersey this Saturday, says centre Gareth Owen, as the Championship leaders take their 20-game winning streak to the Channel Islands. full article on the offy HERE

 Also this is leap year weekend!  So don't forget girls you can propose on Saturday
