'We can't wait to be back' Jersey Reds fans ready to return ahead of RFU Championship game against Nottingham

After 14 long months Jersey Reds fans will finally be able to watch their team this weekend.

Up to 1,000 spectators are allowed at Reds home game with Nottingham on Saturday. The Jersey outfit will become the first professional rugby club to host fans in the British Isles this year.

Understandably supporters cannot wait to return.

Reds will hope to mark the occasion with their second win of the campaign, they'll fancy their chances as well with tomorrow's visitors Nottingham the only team below them in the table. Reds will be without former captain Apakuki Ma'afe though who announced his retirement this week. It comes after he received an 11 game ban for two incidents in the recent defeat at Ealing.

They may be a man down in the squad, but they now have some extra help from the stands.

Saturday's game gets underway at 3pm.
