National One: Wharfedale 14-32 Jersey

Jersey team huddle
Jersey are aiming to clinch a fourth promotion in five years

National One leaders Jersey came from behind to win at Wharfedale and clinch a 15th straight victory.

Dan Solomi opened the scoring for the hosts but Jersey hit back with a Nathan Hannay try in a topsy-turvy first half.

A series of penalties and drop goals saw the lead regularly change hands, with Wharfedale 14-13 ahead at the break.

But Jersey tries from Ashley Maggs, James Copsey and Kingsley Lang clinched a bonus point.

"We started a bit shakily and it's a very difficult place to come and play," said Jersey director of rugby Ben Harvey.

"The boys came out in the second half and were fantastic and to get a bonus point victory here really is the icing on the cake.

"We consistently scrummaged fantastically well and Myles Landick was absolutely superb and was our man of the match."

Title-chasers Rosslyn Park and Fylde both lost on Saturday, but second-place Ealing Trailfinders won to keep up the pressure on Jersey at the top of the table.

The islanders remain five points clear while Wharfedale fall two places to 13th.
