Guernsey Ladies come out on top in Inter-Island clash

Guernsey Ladies ran away with a four try victory over rivals Jersey at St Peter today. The final score 7-22.

Jersey clawed a try back with the final play of the game but the Sarnians were the better side on the afternoon, forcing the home team to defend their line for most of the game.

Guernsey will be disappointed they just missed out on a bonus point victory but will be pleased a win keeps them in the running for a potential play-off spot in the Women's NC South East South division 1.

Jersey came away with tough 22-18 win against bottom of the championship Moseley as they returned to St Peter for the first time in five weeks.

Moseley gave the Islanders no room to breath and even forced Jersey to go into half-time a point behind.

The reds rallied in the second scoring two quick tries through James Freeman and Uili Kolo'ofai. Moseley refused to surrender however and scored a try of their own, not letting the home side get too far away.

In the end it was Jersey who controlled the game, pushing for a bonus point try but not quite managing to get across the line.

Head Coach Harvey Biljon says his players will be disappointed they did not secure a bonus point but that they did well to get the win in the first place:
