The Cornish Pirates v. Jersey Reds

The old saying – a game of two halves – is overused, but this week-end against Jersey Reds, it was still appropriate. In front of a good crowd of supporters – a little over 2,000 – The Reds started at full speed and after 3 minutes they scored their first converted try, followed after 7 minutes with their second. Already with no more than 8 minutes on the clock, the Pirates found themselves 14 points behind! The Reds continued in like fashion and nearly scored their third try, but this time the Pirates kept their line intact. Although the Reds were ruling the game for the first quarter, slowly the Pirates started to make some attacks of their own, and following a penalty against Jersey, Arwel Robson kicked to the corner and from the successful line-out, Tom Channon dived over the line. Robson was successful with the conversion. Right on half-time, Jersey were awarded a penalty, but at a distance of 40 metres. However, their kicker made no mistake with his kick at the posts to bring the score at half-time to 7-17.

The Pirates started strongly in the second half, and after putting a lot of pressure on the Reds, and in the 50th minute they scored their second try. Once again it was Tom Channon who scored and Robson was successful with the difficult touch-line conversion. There wasn’t much difference now between the two teams. On 60 minutes the Pirates began to introduce a number of replacements, amongst them, Tom Kessel. Immediately the Pirates went up a gear and with an increase in pressure and following a number of pick-and-drives, they scored their third try through Tom Kessel. Now with the Pirates leading 21-17, they seemed to be in control of the game, and with 5 minutes remaining, Robin Wedlake was sent into the corner to score the bonus point try. But the supporters’ excitement did not last long, for according to the assistant referee, a Pirates player had put his hand into the ruck and so the try was disallowed. With no more than 3 minutes on the clock, there was one chance for the Reds to steal the game, but they knocked on and the referee whistled for ‘no side’. Final Score: The Cornish Pirates 21, Jersey Reds 17.
