Jersey v Uckfield 24/11/19

In their previous match the Colts lost to last year’s champions Horsham 36-28 after gallantly fighting back from 22-7 down to 22-21, the only consolation being a bonus point for 4 tries.  It was essential that they bounced back with a good performance against Uckfield.

The day started badly with a 2 hour delay at Jersey airport which would have a knock-on effect to timings across the day.  The squad arrived at Uckfield at 1:15 for a 2 pm kick-off.  As a result of the heavy rain the pitch was to use a horse racing term “heavy going”. 

Jersey made a bright start and immediately pushed Uckfield back to their line only to fail tantalisingly close to the try line.  Continued pressure saw Kai Le Luan smash through the Uckfield defence in the ninth minute to score the first try, converted by David Quinn Jersey ahead 7-0. This was followed up 8 minutes later by some great pressure by Jersey which saw Tom Boarer deftly pass from the base of the scrum to a running Michael Kenealy to score the second try which went unconverted - 12-0.   In the dying minutes of the first half Uckfield scored an intercepted try against the run of play to make it 12-7 at halftime. 

The half time team talk from lead coach David (Macca) McCormack was to keep things tight, retain possession and play the conditions which by now were old school - very muddy conditions.  Jersey were not going to let Uckfield in again and kept them under pressure which saw them camped in their opponents half for much of the second period.  Jersey scored two more tries through Henry Dawson and the last after some great play and an excellent pass from Jonty Bailey to Lawrence Bouchard to score, with a conversion by David Quinn Jersey Reds Colts won 24-7 with a bonus point for 4 tries which would crucially put them top of the table with Worthing who they play next on 8th December. 

Thanks go to the Colts sponsor Saltgate for their valued support

General information

Team Selection

As a team we will endeavour to ensure that all registered players get the opportunity to play a game in the Sussex League.  In the selection process team coaches shall have the final say.  Players who fail to show or who show up unacceptably late for training without reasonable excuse may be dropped arbitrarily at the coach's discretion.  A history of unreliability (reasonable or not) may adversely affect future selections.  It is the player's responsibility to inform their coach or manager if they are unable to play on a given weekend in the week preceding the match.  Early advice will benefit the team, as it will enable team selections to be finalised at training. While attendance at training is not compulsory, commitment to the team is. 

Players with reasonable excuses for not training are not penalised, although they must realise that players who do train regularly will have a natural advantage over them which will increase as the season progresses. 

Coaches are aware of the effect of selecting non-training players on the performance of their team as a whole. Players who fail to train without reasonable excuse may be dropped arbitrarily at the coach's discretion.  It is the player's responsibility to inform their coach or manager if they will be unable to attend training prior to the commencement of that training session. 

Selection is based on the following criteria:

  • Level of skill the player has demonstrated
  • Level of fitness that the player has attained
  • Knowledge of position
  • Performance in training or previous games
  • Player development
  • Attendance
  • Commitment to the team
