Doncaster Knights 19 Jersey 26

17/01/2015

Jersey secured their 3rd win of the season away at Castle Park over a determined Doncaster Knights who fought to the end, constantly putting the Reds under pressure in the second period.

2 first half tries, one a classic catch and drive and the other an opportunist try by Locke capitilising on a Knights mistake had set Jersey on their way, and with a dominant, heavier pack there was every expectation that Harvey's men would build on the solid HT score of 9-23. The Knights had other ideas though, and were a different, more potent threat in the second period.

Jersey had to endure sustained periods of pressure and ultimately it was their stoic defence that saw them over the line with a win that elevates them to 8th in the table.
