Bristol Rugby 34 Jersey Reds 38

04/03/2018

The Reds record a stunning first win over Bristol rugby away at Ashton Gate.

The home side were first on the score sheet, but it didn't take long for Jersey to respond and level the scores.

In a fast paced first half, it was Jersey that really took the game to the hosts and deservedly went in at the break leading by 20-28 having already secured the try bonus point with a double by captain Scott van Breda and singles by Jerry Sexton and Kieran Hardy.

Bristol knew that the first score of the second half would be crucial, and when pressing the Reds' defence, Tom Pincus nipped in to steal an interception and gallop away to score.

Holding a solid advantage going into the closing stages, the Reds had to endure a Bristol fight back, but thankfully held on to take maximum points.

A great effort by everyone underpinned by a perfect '6 from 6' display from the tee by Brendan Cope.
