one or two unexpected selections in that team. Perhaps due to injury and wanting to give everyone a hit out in the cup. We do have a massive squad for the championship. Great to have a few long termers back from the physios recovery room

Seemed like Uzokwe has a cracking game.

Smithy on the radio gave that impression.

Not a good first half, we struggled for possession and kicked most of the ball we did have. Jersey played some nice rugby but struggled to make much progress with it. Their try looked like a bit of a mix-up between Radwan and Young, though neither can be criticised for it.

Darren Barry had a good game I thought. Blamire was quite lively as well, made a big break for one of the tries.

Hopefully Penny's injury (head by the look of it) isn't too bad, man's got no luck with injuries.

Overall, good in defence but need to do better when we have the ball.
