Jersey boss Ben Harvey has heaped praise on teenage full-back Chris Levesley after he scored his first try for the island side.

The 17-year-old is a product of the club's youth academy and has forced his way into the side this season.

He has made three starts in National One this season and scored in the 41-3 win at Birmingham and Solihull.

"He was absolutely fantastic. Everything he did was professional," Harvey told BBC Radio Jersey.

"I don't think he made a mistake throughout the game and he capped it off with a tremendous final effort.

"He picked up the ball on half-way and skinned the full-back to score in the corner. It really was a great moment," Harvey said.

The win moved fourth-placed Jersey to within one point of second-placed Rosslyn Park and five of leaders Ealing, who drew 27-27 at Blackheath.

Jersey have won more games than any other side in the National One this season and are only fourth after having a five-point deduction for fielding too many foreign players.
