Jersey Rugby suffer narrow defeat

Jersey Rugby Club narrowly lost their first match in National One away to Fylde by 29 points to 27.

Jersey started well and took an early lead when Ross Broadfoot scored a try.

But Fylde came back strongly with three first half tries, one from Mike Waywell and two from Nick Royle, to lead 24-8 at the break.

Jersey played much better in the second half, scoring tries by Nick Trower, Donny Sanders and Guy Thompson. But another try from Fylde through Steve Briers was enough for them to keep their noses in front.

Jersey had the consolation of two bonus points, for scoring four tries and losing by less than seven, but in reality they’ll rue a first-half performance that lost them a game they could have won.
