Match report 16/11/14 - Jersey v Heathfield

A bright and sunny morning saw the first home game for Jersey in the under 15s West Sussex league when Heathfield and Waldron RFC travelled to the island for their league fixture against the Academy U15 side.  

This was the first time that many of the parents have had the opportunity to watch the boys play against an English side. This coupled with a number of visiting parents meant a sizeable number of supporters were on the sideline anticipating an exciting game.  The boys did not disappoint!

Heathfield started strongly and Jersey had to soak up a great deal of pressure but some intelligent kicking by Zack Boudin saw the Jersey team turn the tide and place Heathfield under pressure.  A Jersey penalty near Heathfield's try line saw Mark Boarer signature tap and go leave the Heathfield defence stranded and him crossing the line for a try.

The islanders remained dominant for much of the first half with strong, powerful work from all the forwards and incisive runs from Will Flemmer, Tom Coutanche and Will Le Heuze but the islanders could not convert this pressure into any points. The first half ended with Frazier George being yellow carded for a late tackle 5 minutes towards the end of the half.

The 2nd half again saw Heathfield start strongly but Jersey pressed forward and a superb interception by Tom Coutanche saw him using his speed and power to place the ball under the posts.  Finlay Laing converted to leave the islanders 12 - 0  in front.  Heathfield responded quickly, with some strong runs, particularity from Harrison Walker (No. 13) resulting in 2 quick tries by the visitors and a conversion bring the score back to 12 - 12.  The visitors were unlucky to hit the cross bar with the first conversion attempt.

This domination was curtailed after a particularity important tackle by Ben Ward, turning over the ball.  The ball was then quickly moved to the wing where the ever safe and speedy island springbok, Will Flemmer, sped down the line to bring the score to 17 - 12.  

Strong open play by both teams followed, particularity by Alex Hill for Jersey who was always willing to take the ball forward after break downs, gaining valuable yards with each of his runs.  A nail-biting finish saw the best of the days play. The ball was passed from the right wing through 5 jersey players to end in the hands Johnnie Kene who crossed the line to give the islanders a bonus 4th try ending the game 22 - 12 to the islanders.

All the boys played superbly but it was no surprise when the visitors selected Tom as the Jersey Man of the Match with the Jersey coaches selecting Harrison Walker as Heathfield's Man of the Match.  

Both teams should be proud of their commitment, determination and performance for an excellent game that was enjoyed by all.  

This 5 point win should mean that Jersey should remain top of their league.

General information

Discipline: Team discipline is crucial to the overall success of any team endeavour. Not only do disciplined teams perform well on the field, but, if teams are able to maintain good discipline both on and off the field, the overall rugby experience is far more positive for all involved. Everybody takes responsibility for what happens.
