More injuries with leaders on horizon

A CRIPPLING injury list rather than a heavy defeat is giving Guernsey Rugby Club coach Jordan Reynolds plenty of cause for concern ahead of hosting the league leaders this weekend.
A weakened Guernsey side suffered a comprehensive 57-5 loss at Tonbridge Juddian on Saturday and they look set to face new National Three London & South-East table-toppers Bishop’s Stortford with even more regulars missing.
‘If anything our team will be even more depleted,’ said Reynolds.
‘Divon Crouse has broken a bone in his shoulder, Darrin Bellingham is on crutches, Simon Sharrott had to come off with a shoulder problem and Sam Stevens did start but did not last as long as we hoped.
‘Hopefully Jason Batiste will be able to return next week and I have all my fingers crossed that Tom Pool might be OK, but I don’t want to force people to play and make their condition worse by doing so.
