Narrow defeat for start of 2013

Sport | Published:

Jersey Rugby Club's hopes of a winning start to 2013 in the Championship were dashed by the narrowest of margins this afternoon.

Playing away, the Island side were defeated by Moseley 19-23, despite an inspired comeback in the second half.

Trailing 6-13 at half time, the Jersey team allowed the opposition to extend their lead until, with the score at 23-9 to Moseley, Jersey scored two tries in quick succession.

But with just minutes to go until the final whistle, the Islanders were unable to close the four-point gap and had to settle for a consolation losing bonus point for the close score.

It was Jersey's second Championship defeat to Moseley this season, adding to the pressure to stay in this division.
