Jersey 12 Nottingham Rugby 10


Jersey ground out a gutsy win in cold and wet conditions, much to the delight of the home faithful who had come up and braved the elements.

Foster scored the first try of the afternoon after 4 minutes to give Jersey the lead, but it only lasted until the 8th minute when Nottingham scored a converted try of their own. The visitors extended their lead with a penalty midway in the first half to go in at half-time 5-10.

It wasn't until late on in the second half that Jersey got their crucial 2nd try through McCrea that was converted by Bentley to regain the lead, and they then held on with some determined defence on their own 22 when being pressurised right to the end.
