A RED card for lock Sean O’Connor did not deter Jersey Reds as they booked themselves a home Championship Cup semi-final at Hartpury’s expense.

The Islanders played almost the entire second half with 14 men following a tip tackle by their number four, but they extended their 12-7 half-time lead to 23 points before the visitors bagged a late consolation.

Eoghan Clarke, Tim Grey, Dan Barnes and TJ Harris all touched down to help secure a 30-14 second-leg victory [49-33 aggregate] – setting up a last-four bout at St Peter next Friday, against either Coventry or Doncaster Knights.
