Jersey put Beckenham to the sword to go top

Coach Barry George, however, is still not convinced his side will win automatic promotion to London I.

‘Listen,’ he said.

‘There are still 18 matches to go and on our day we could have a bad one.

The plus factor for us is that we’re hurting a few teams we’ve played against.

We knew that we had a win like this in us; it’s been a long time coming and Beckenham were unlucky that they finished on the end of it.

‘We’d talked about setting up a platform up front and I can’t praise Jim Brimelow enough – he anchors the front row.

All three of the back row are now running wide and in spells we played some nice rugby.

‘I was a little concerned at the end of the first half, but there’s a good team spirit.

Everyone wants to be part of it.’ In effect the game was over by the 13th minute, during which time the visitors conceded two of the best tries seen at the rugby club in years.

The first try, in the seventh minute, was made by second row forward Talite Vaioleti whose blind side break was rounded off by captain Kern Yates, who went on to score a hat-trick.
