Jersey Reds 27 Cornish Pirates 24
After a somewhat disappointing first half display the Cornish Pirates needed to fight their way back into this match, and they did. At one point 24-3 down, in the space of just six minutes in the second period they conjured up three converted tries to draw level. Indeed, it appeared that victory was suddenly in sight, but it wasn’t to be, their hopes dashed in the 79th minute when Sam Katz kept his cool to land a match-winning penalty.
