Reds cling to 2nd spot in Cup rankings


Jersey Reds' six-match unbeaten run came to an end at Silver Royd in Scarborough.

Hosts Yorkshire Carnegie ran in four first-half tries and then withstood a Reds' comeback to eventually win 26-19.

There were contrasting emotions for the two sides an hour after the game as the full-time result from the Leinster 'A' v Doncaster Knights' game came in. The Knights scored 28 second half points to win 28-37 and qualify ahead of Carnegie, who must now await the result of the postponed Cornish Pirates v Hartpury game to see if they'll qualify. Meanwhile the Irish hosts landed just a single bonus point that left the Reds second, behind Ealing, in the final pool-stage rankings.

The Reds will play a home quarter-final against opponents TBC on the Friday or Saturday of the Easter weekend (March 30th/31st).
