Jersey 17 Bedford Blues 3

14/02/2015

Jersey put in a solid all-round performance throughout the game
with a try in each half to overcome a good Bedford Blues side.

Whilst the rain stayed away during the game, earlier showers
meant that it was wet and muddy underfoot, making for
testing conditions. That said, both sides started off playing
with confidence and pace, eager to pass the ball around and run it
at every opportunity.

The stalemate was finally broken after 20 minutes when Bedford
kicked an easy penalty from in front of the posts to make it
0-3.

Jersey who had dominated territory without reward finally scored
on the stroke of half time as Locke went over in the corner.
Penberthy converted and it was 7-3 at the break.

The Jersey forwards who played really well as a unit throughout,
dominating line out plays, and taking some ball against the
throw finally got just reward with a try from a scrum deep in the
Bedford 22. PK broke at the back, but was held up. At the second
attempt Phillips got over the whitewash and Penberthy again added
the extras.

A late Penberthy penalty extended the advantage, and Bedford had
no answer.
