Reds cling on for precious points

31/12/2017

Jersey Reds rounded off 2017 with a hard-earned four points at the Mennaye Field.

The 15-19 win over the Cornish Pirates was the fifth successive by the Island side in this 'local derby' fixture, and as on many previous fixtures in Penzance was played on a muddy surface after heavy rain in the build-up.

The visitors used the conditions to their advantage in the first half, with a pair of mauled tries - the first by Max Argyle, the second by Nick Selway - and a conversion by Scott van Breda, to lead 10-12 at the break. Will Cargill scored the hosts' points with a penalty, try and conversion.

The second half featured just two more tries - Selway again for the Reds, with an excellent conversion by the skipper, and then Kyle Moyle to give the Pirates hope. It could have got even better for the home side, but an attack that went almost the length of the field was stopped just short. The Reds held on, in spite of spending 20 minutes of the second half with 14 men after yellow cards for Jerry Sexton and Tom Pincus.
