Spectators continue to flock to Rues Des Landes where Jersey moved another step closer to the National One title with a bonus- point win over Cambridge. Jersey racked up a half-

century of points to the delight of the 2,628 spectators in the ground: a crowd that took the Islanders’ average attendance for the season past the 2,000 mark – double that of the next

best supported side. Jersey ran in seven tries in total and kicker Ross Broadfoot supplied 16 points.

Ben Harvey’s side continue to hold a four- point lead over Ealing, who put a half- century of points on Tynedale – Jersey’s opponents this coming weekend. Phil Chesters scored

another brace of tries to take his total for the season to 37, but he was outdone on the day by England Under-20 No.8 Jack Clifford and centre Sam Wardingley who both crossed for

hat- tricks to keep the Londoners’ title hopes alive. Meanwhile, it is still mathematically possible for Fylde to finish top of the table after an impressive win at Rosslyn Park. Despite losing

two men to the sin- bin Fylde scored seven tries to three against.

There were points aplenty in the day’s other fixtures, with Blackheath, Cinderford, Stourbridge and Wharfedale all managing to score 30 points or more in home wins. Birmingham &

Solihull, though, were beaten at home as their recent winning run came to an end at Damson Park against local rivals Coventry. Mark O’Connor was the star of the show for the visitors

with a 16- point haul.
