Savage returns for St Peter Showdown

Nottingham full-back Andrew Savage returns from injury to take on Jersey at St Peter in tomorrow's re-arranged Championship fixture.

The 27-year-old's recovery from a hamstring complaint sees versatile back David Jackson, who this week signed a contract extension with the Meadow Lane club, move to the left wing with Ryan Hough named as an emergency replacement in the extended squad.

Joe Cobden retains his place in the centres after coming on as a half-time replacement for Tim Streather in the narrow win over Bristol which propelled the Green and Whites to second in the league last week.

Nine places and 34 points separate Nottingham and Jersey on the Championship ladder.

Green and Whites No. 8 Alex Shaw insists the East Midlands outfit are approaching the trip with the same verve that they will next week's highly anticipated top-of-the-table clash with Newcastle at Meadow Lane (Friday, March 22).

"Jersey are a good side, especially at their place where they have picked up some big results and pushed a lot of teams," Shaw said.

"Our approach doesn't change if we are playing a side below us in the league or if we are coming up against the leaders.

"We have spent the week focused on what we have to do to get the better of Jersey and consolidating our place in the top four."

Nottingham Rugby team to face Jersey at St Peter on Saturday, March 16 (2.15pm kick-off):

15 Andrew Savage 14 Alex Lewington 13 Joe Cobden 12 Joe Munro 11 David Jackson 10 James Arlidge 9 Sean Romans 1 Jonny Harris 2 Joe Duffey 3 Michael Holford 4 Dan Montagu 5 Nic Rouse 6 Rupert Cooper 7 Brent Wilson 8 Alex Shaw

Replacements from: 16 Shaun Malton 17 Ryan Bower 18 Joe Quinn 19 Tom Calladine 20 Finlay Barnham 21 Rory Lynn 22 Andy Forsyth.
