Jersey Rugby end season on a high

Rugby Union

Jersey completed their first season in London League One with a 25-15 win at home to Bishop's Stortford.

The Islanders had to fight their way back from 12-10 down at the break, after visiting winger Joe Clarke went in twice during the early exchanges.

But tries from Brendan O'Brien, Brian Rennison and Talite Vaioleti put the Islanders back in front.

A Tom Coleman penalty gave the visitors hope before Mitch Burton secured Jersey's win with a stunning drop-goal.

Burton told BBC Radio Jersey: "It was up there with some of my best drop kicks. I managed to hit it pretty sweet and as soon as it left the foot I knew it was going to sail through."

Jersey were already assured of a third place finish in London League One before the match began.
