Yorkshire Carnegie 26 Jersey Reds 21


Fortress Headingley again holds firm against the Reds.

Yorkshire were first to score, but then for much of the first half it was Jersey who controlled both possession and territory, but struggled to break down a stubborn defence.

The Reds levelled the scores when Jerry Sexton stole lineout ball on the Yorkshire 5m line and powered over.

Carnegie extended their lead to go in 19-7 at half time, and then went further ahead soon after the break.

It proved to be a frustrating afternoon for the visitors who came so close on many occasions, only for the final move to be thwarted by an organised home side.

Yorkshire got their bonus point try from another well-worked penalty move, and Jersey secured a losing bonus point with a last minute converted try.
