Good win for Raiders over Gravesend

A hat-trick by Luke Sayer put the Raiders up 17-3 at the half and there would be no way back for the visitors. Tries for Malagodi and Walters in the second sealing the game.

Guernsey had lost their last two games in a row and were in 6th place in National 3 going into the weekend.

Michael Le Bourgeois has had his contract extended by Bedford for the 2016/2017 season.

The 25-year-old became a member of the Bedford Blues squad in 2013 having moved from Jersey.

He started his rugby career in the Jersey Academy in 2008 before signing for the first team in 2011, becoming the first Jersey Academy graduate and Jersey born player to sign a professional contract with the club.

Le Bourgeois is a versatile player comfortable playing in the centre, fly half, on the wing and at full-back.

Harvey Biljon: "We deserve to be in final"

Jersey RFC Head Coach Harvey Biljon believes that his team deserve to be in the final after their agonising one point loss to Yorkshire Carnegie in the B&I Cup semi finals.

The Reds put in brave performance at one of the Championship's top sides but it was not quite enough, the game finishing 33-32.


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.

It was a tough, physical game played in some very difficult conditions.

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.
