Jersey 22 London Scottish 20

25/03/2016

Jersey battled bravely to clinch a last gasp win over a powerful Exiles' side.

Jersey were quick off the mark and notched a score in the opening minute before the Scots came storming back to score twice and then extend their lead with a penalty.

Jersey rallied and scored their 2nd try and a penalty on the stroke of half time to go in at the break 15-17 down.

Playing up the slope in the 2nd period, Jersey struggled to get out of their own half and had to endure relentless pressure for long periods of time. London Scottish extended their lead with a penalty and it was then a stalemate for much of the rest of the half before Jersey finally got the decisive score through a penalty try in the final few minutes.

There was time to restart, and Jersey had to again defend before the final whistle blew, much to the relief of a large home crowd.
