Pirates look to be in for a thrashing. 19-0 after 19 minutes.

Rough justice for Pirates just now - Falcons 3rd try went to TMO and in the absence of clear evidence they stuck with the on-field decision of 'try given.' Then Pirates cross and it goes to TMO and in the absence of clear evidence they overturn the on-field decision of 'try given.'

the referee and TMO favouring the bigger team again.... this ref is miles out his depth, absolutely miles. mind you he hasn't changed the result of this game so far. 26 - 0 Falcons lead.

disagree about Adam Leal. He's a capable ref and has been ok today - my only negative observation is that he seems less comfortable and assertive when dealing with a TMO than Messrs Barnes, Owens, Pearce etc. Which isn't surprising...

Pirates cross as I type and convert for 33-7 (67min)

Pirates outgunned physically, but fought back in the second half which was much more of a contest.

A bit harsh mate but probably fair. I eventually got back on the rock and looking positive Jersey can surely not play like that against Ealing next week. The loose head side structure of Jersey's scrum was woeful and it made Quigley into a shoe in for the international 15 next week end. 2 yellow yards - should have been 3 for taking a man out in the air - and no game management on the field or from the coaches on the side lines. Donny were made to look better than the pies but Jersey would have struggled against Guernsey on Saturday. Great to see Pembo back in a Jersey shirt and Jake Upfield had another cracking match. Sort it out before Ealing next Saturday - please!
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

I hope you sort your scrum out in time CC.  We were massacred by the Ealing one yesterday. Big smile

Strange as the week before, when we played Ealing, the scrums were pretty evenly matched. If anything Jersey had the better of it.
Clearly just weren't up for the trip and Doncaster were. These things happen.

I guessed not but feel free to read the match reports.

As our local blogger Tim Smith wrote today we scored:  'five tries in the last 22 minutes (four in the final 10)' so what seemed like a one-sided game only became so once we became less profligate with attacking ball - a trait that has marred many a first half this season.  It wasn't quite the day for expansive rugby in the Midlands.

The 52 points we finally scored has to be weighed considerably against the quality of opponent.  One or two of the sides in this division would likely have scored in excess of 70 and, love or loathe our hard to please personas, that is the standard we strive for.
