CHAMPIONSHIP GAME BETWEEN LONDON IRISH AND JERSEY REDS ENDS 42-29

Guy Armitage former back for London Irish opened his Jersey account just three minutes into the London Irish – Jersey Reds game played at the Madejski Stadium.


Armitage, who was debuting for Jersey Reds for the first time, got the opening try, while replies for Irish were made by David Paice and Richard Palframan via scores from mauls.

Ben Ransom, Tom Fowlie and Paice, once again, all touched down for the hosts after the half time break.

Tries by Marc Tomas, George Watkins and Nick Haining were enough to ensure a bonus point for the Jersey Reds.
