Yorkshire Carnegie coach Tommy McGee has said his side will face a tough challenge when they travel across to Jersey for their latest Greene King IPA Championship clash this Saturday.

After three successive wins in the British & Irish Cup, Yorkshire return to league action with the longest trip of the season however McGee believes his side can take the confidence they have drawn from their recent good form back into domestic competition. 

Looking ahead to the game, McGee said, "The boys are in a good place and we are a looking forward to taking on a very good Jersey side. It is always a tough place to go but we have trained well this week and are looking to carry the good parts of our recent games into this match.

"The players are enjoying their rugby and that is important. We have pretty much got the same team we have played in recent weeks so there is some continuity within the group, partly due to a number of injuries we are carrying and partly because we wanted to use the Cup as a springboard into three very tough games in the league around Christmas and New Year," added McGee.
