Jersey 31 Sedgley Park 10
SSE
National League One

Jersey cruised to an ultimately comfortable victory in a game
that, while not dirty, was marred by six yellow cards.

At one stage in the first half Jersey's 14 men were up against
12 from Sedgley Park following a bout of fighting that saw hookers
Charlie Clyde-Smith and Richard Oxley carded along with Park's Adam
Lewis.

Visiting skipper Garth Dew had already received an early yellow
for killing the ball and in the second period Steve O'Brien
(Jersey) and Matt Riley (Sedgley) were also ordered from the
fray.

Donovan Sanders and James Copsey scored the first half tries
that reflected the home team's dominance in building a 17-0 lead.
Jersey also started the second half strongly, with Copsey crossing
for his second within five minutes.

The visitors' best spell came in the middle of the second half
when prop Nick Flynn and flanker Dew scored tries that rewarded
some strong attacking play, briefly threatening Jersey's
hegemony.

17-year-old debutant Chris Levesley was a lively presence
throughout for Jersey and crossed the line twice in the second half
only to be called back by the referee. But the home team secured
their try bonus point with five minutes to play when Ed Dawson
squeezed over in the corner from replacement Ross Broadfoot's pass.
Mike Le Bourgeois maintained a perfect record with his touchline
conversion.
