Details for fans travelling to St Peter

Bristol Rugby face Jersey in the Greene King IPA Championship at St Peter on Saturday (3pm KO).

FRIDAY NIGHT

The club will be open on Friday evening before the game. A good chance to meet some 'native' supporters, engage in some pre-match banter, have a 'recce' of the ground, visit the club shop and pick up your tickets for the game the next day. The Barclays Pavilion will be open between 5.30 and 7.30pm, the Liberation Ale will be tapped and Sean the Club Manager will be providing free nibbles.

PRE-MATCH

The Pavilion Bar adjacent to the Clubhouse will be open to all supporters from 12noon, offering full bar, including locally-brewed Liberation Ale on handpump, plus food such as 'special of the day', 'posh dogs', pasties, burgers etc.

THE MATCH

Ground Admission is £15, or £5 for full-time students with suitable ID. Under 17s are free, proof-of-age is required.

POST-MATCH

Access to the clubhouse will be limited to players, officials, JRFC members and anyone in possesion of a wrist-band. 

The Pavilion bar and outlets around the ground will stay open for all supporters until well after the clubhouse is opened to all. Normally things start to wind down between 7pm and 8pm, when people head for St Aubin or St Helier.

TRANSPORT

For those flying in/out on the day, the ground is less than 10 minutes walk from the airport. A taxi to/from the ground to town (St Helier) will be around £15.

Or there's the No 9 bus to/from St Helier (£1.70) which stops outside the ground or the number 15 to the Airport (also £1.70; get off at the penultimate stop, The Mermaid, and it's a 5-minute walk).

MOBILE PHONES

We've had feedback from some visiting supporters who have received large phone bills on their return from the Island because the small-print on their tariffs didn't include Jersey, leading to higher call/ roaming/ data charges.
