Hove Hawks 10 Jersey Reds U13’s 50

Our second outing of the season saw the Team traveling to a very sunny and welcoming Hove RFC. A few changes to the squad allowed those new players, to show what they could do.  No more so than Alex Edwards who from the opening few minutes demonstrated what strong running lines can do to an unknowing opposition.  Within 10 minutes Jersey had a 2 try lead but took their foot off the pedal. Hove started to push Jersey back, some great defensive work was needed to hold Hove up over the line twice before scoring their opening try of the game.

Jersey playing up hill, got back in the game and traded scores, ending the first half leading 5 tries to 2.

Special mention to the defensive trio of Ollie Houghton, Arthur Mangematin and William Richardson who appeared to hit every ruck and make every tackle, great work guys!

A prodigious 10 minute passage of play in the second half saw Jersey winning quick ball from the rucks, allowing them to keep momentum, to score 3 quick tries in succession.  The centre partnership of Alex Edwards (3) and Lyle Pritchard (4) scoring a total of 7 tries between them.

An unanswered score line from Hove in the second half saw Jersey win 50-10 but at no time did Hove stop trying, another good test for Jersey with 2 more games before Christmas.

Tries: Lyle Pritchard 4, Alex Edwards 3 (Man Of the Match), Louis Pallant 1, Joseph Griffiths 1, Luca Eastwood 1 and Cole Gueno 1.

A  great day out and a big thanks to Hove for being great hosts.

Minis and Juniors would also like to say a huge thank you to our Sponsors Santander International and to Jersey Sport for travel grant funding , without which these matches would not be possible
