Jersey Reds 21 Nottingham Rugby 22

23/09/2016

A cruel blow to the hosts as Nottingham score a converted try in stoppage time to steal the points under the new lights.

Jersey lead by 14-10 at half time, having had to come back from 0-7 down.

Two well worked tries by the homeside gave us the advantage - one by Fisilau from the back of a driving maul, and the other by Selway from a driving maul following a lineout.

The first half was played at a frentic pace but there were generally too many mistakes and penalties given away by the Reds which broke the pattern of play.

The pace in the second half unsurprisingly slowed. Notts scored a try on 46 mins and Jersey hit back straight after, but then with chances on offer the Reds couldn't close the game out, and ultimately paid the price.
