British and Irish Cup: Dragons Premiership Select 7-34 Jersey Reds

Jersey Reds v Yorkshire Carnegie
Jersey backed up their opening B&I Cup win over Yorkshire Carnegie with another bonus-point victory

Jersey Reds strengthened their position at the top of their British and Irish Cup group with a commanding bonus-point win over Dragons Premiership Select.

An early penalty try put the Reds ahead but, with Jersey captain Jake Woolmore in the sin-bin, the Welsh side hit back through Rio Dyer's score.

Hooker Nick Selway crashed over to help the visitors to a 12-7 half-time lead.

A further penalty try, after Dragons disrupted a maul, and two Rory Pitman tries secured the Jersey win.

The Reds have taken a maximum 10 points from their opening two fixtures, as they try to repeat last year's B&I Cup run which saw them go all the way to the final - only to lose by a single point against Munster A.
