British & Irish Cup holders Leinster A continued their winning start to the defence of their title with a 26-6 victory over Jersey.

Skipper Luke McGrath claimed two tries to help the hosts to a comfortable half-time lead in foul conditions.

Jersey spent 15 minutes camped on the line before the break but despite two Leinster yellow cards at the scrum there was to be no penalty try.

A benign second half saw Leinster close out the game to go top of pool five.

"I think it comes down to our own errors," said Jersey head coach Harvey Biljon, whose side are second.

"We had opportunities to build a score in the second half and unfortunately we didn't do that.

"I think we had 11 penalties on the bounce there and we didn't get anything back, there's not much more I can say but I have to review it on the footage."
