Yorkshire Carnegie head coach Bryan Redpath is hoping the club’s supporter’s will be out in force at Headingley Carnegie this Sunday to boost his side as they bid to make it through to the Final of the British and Irish Cup.

Looking ahead to the semi-final against Jersey this Sunday Redpath said: “Every game now is a big game for us, and obviously this is a semi-final and it’s at home so you want to get the win to get back here for the final. We would love as many people as possible to come along and watch.  All the internationals finish on Saturday so it’s a chance for the people of Yorkshire to come in and watch and see a game of rugby and hopefully it will be a nice dry day and we can throw the ball about as well and try entertain a bit as well.  So it would be great to have a big crowd there, which is a big incentive for the players.

“It’s going to be a tough game against Jersey, they had a good win against Bedford last weekend and their form in the Championship has been good.  We have a lot of people back for us and also we have got to reward last week’s performance as well when we played pretty well.”
