British & Irish Cup, Quarter-Final
Goldington Road

A fantastic win at Goldington Road, Jersey's third victory of the season over Bedford Blues, secured a semi-final place in the British & Irish Cup for the Island side.

The historic result for the Reds, who had never played in a knock-out Cup match since reaching the national league stage, was built on the back of some tough defence and immense power from the forwards.

Two tries from rolling mauls, finished by James Freeman, helped the visitors to a 12-all half-time scoreline, with Dean Adamson and Piers O'Conor responding for the hosts.

Bedford took the lead with a penalty just after half-time, but a third mauled try by Freeman gave the visitors a lead they never surrendered.

Jersey will be away to either Moseley or Yorkshire Carnegie in next weekend's semi-final.
