England Rugby Team Coming To Jersey

The England team will train at the Stade Santander International

The England rugby union team are coming to Jersey for an autumn training camp.

They'll be hosted by Jersey Reds and use the Strive high-performance centre between 25 October and 29 October.

It's ahead of their three test matches at Twickenham Stadium against Tonga, Australia, and South Africa.

"Jersey has a strong rugby community, and the new Strive centre is an outstanding facility with a state-of-the-art training centre, alongside the Jersey Reds’ facilities.

“We usually go to Portugal but with the challenges presented by Covid-19, it has given us the opportunity to try a new facility and we’re looking forward to spending some time there and working hard this autumn.” - Eddie Jones, Head Coach.

The British and Irish Lions came to Jersey for a training camp earlier this summer ahead of the tour of South Africa.

They also came back post-tour.

Premiership sides Leicester Tigers and Sale Sharks have come to the island this summer for pre-season training fixtures.

Fully vaccinated members of the England team will be able to come into Jersey without having to isolate.

There is currently still a testing requirement upon arrival.

"We are thrilled to welcome yet another high-profile visiting rugby side to our club and our Island. We look forward to ensuring Eddie and his team can host a great camp as the England boys prepare for their autumn campaign." - Mark Morgan, speaking to the Jersey Reds website.
