Yorkshire Carnegie left themselves with a mountain to climb with a first half blitz of points from host Jersey Reds proving the difference in a 36-19 defeat to the Channel Islanders.

Yorkshire came into the game hoping for a reversal of fortunes after their defeat to Nottingham last Sunday. Jersey were bottom of the Greene King IPA Championship table at the start of the game having played a game less than the sides around them however they soon set about claiming their first win of the season.

The home side got the opening try of the game after just three minutes when they moved the ball wide to Koch Marx, he opened up the Carnegie defence and then put Roy Godfrey over for the try next to the posts. Aaron Penberthy added the simple conversion to give his side a 7-0 lead.

The advantage was doubled after six minutes when quick ball off the top of the line out created space for Will Homer to go over against his former club. Penberthy was on target again to make it 14-0.

After that early onslaught, Yorkshire Carnegie did settle into that game after that and got a score back with great interplay between Tom Bullough and Andy Forsyth saw them exchange passes before Bullough followed up to get the ball back and score by the posts. Former Jersey fly half Brendan Cope added the conversion to make it 14-7 after 19 minutes.

Cope was enjoying an excellent game against his former club with a number of breaks from his own half but Yorkshire could not make the chances count and were dealt a blow when Jersey crossed for a third try. Having conceded a penalty near the Yorkshire line, the Reds kicked for the corner before rumbling over for the score for Maddison. Penberthy was on target again to give his side a 21-7 lead.

Carnegie were then penalised in possession as Forsyth came away from his own line and Penberthy increased the lead with a penalty before, with the final play of the first half, Jersey sealed the try bonus point when Joyce made the break before finding Sexton, who powered over from close range. Penberthy added the conversion to give the home side a 31-7 advantage at the break.

Dylan Donnellan came on at half time for Yorkshire and the visitors had long spells of pressure near the Jersey line but once again were unable to come away with points from their visits to the home half.

Eventually Yorkshire did cross for a second try when Matt Smith won good ball at the line out and Cope opened up the home defence. The ball was then quickly recycled before Chris Elder, playing on the wing, went over wide out. He converted his own try to make it 31-14 after 55 minutes but sadly in back play Cope had to be helped from the field with an ankle injury suffered in the build up to the try.

Chris Stirling’s side were left frustrated in the second half as they conceded a number of technical penalties which prevented them from gaining any momentum. And from one of these penalties Yorkshire conceded a fifth try as Selway got the ball down following a driving maul. Penberthy kept up his impressive record with the boot to give his side a 36-14 lead with time running out.

Yorkshire did get a score back late on with a quick taken penalty putting skipper Dan Temm over for a third try but time had run out as the visitors went in search of a try bonus point and they return home empty handed.
