Reds Aiming For TV Scalp

Jersey Reds are hoping to inflict another defeat on league leaders London Irish this afternoon.

Harvey Biljon's men are the only Championship side to beat them this season, a 17-14 success at the Stade Santander International in November.

The game at the Madejski Stadium is being broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The Reds Director of Rugby thinks the previous encounter between the two sides will have an impact on today's match.

"I'm not very good on social media but having looked at some of their tweets, I think there's revenge coming in there.

"Remember, we were also the only team to beat London Irish when they got promoted in their last campaign.

"We've already done that this season. We knocked them out in a cup competition to get to a cup final a couple of years ago. I definitely think they're going to be up for this game."

The Reds have made two changes from last week's victory over Bedford Blues.

Apakuki Ma'afu has been hit with a four-week suspension after a dangerous tackle, which means a return for Mark Best.

Brett Herron is also drafted in at fly-half instead of Aaron Penberthy.

Kick-off is at 1:45pm.
