0-7 at HT.

Sounds like a forward battle with tactical kicking.

We scored our try when Jersey had gone down to 14 after big pressure on their line, a Myler break giving a Topsy try in the corner.

Almost inevitable given lack of fit players out wide

Got to say that was awful. Absolutely nothing in the backs, forwards are running better lines. Defense is pretty poor. How did they run the ball from their try line to ours? Scrum fell apart when Pat went off.

That’s pretty disappointing given the size and supposed quality of the pack we put out.

Still, we’ve got a 4 pt lead in the table, and have played 3 of the 4 tricky away games already.

We really need to get some value out of the likes of Nalaga. Where the hell is he? Talk about throwing money down the drain...

You haven't been to Blues, Pirates and Nottingham yet... so I am not sure you've played 3 of the tricky away games, however Ealing will no doubt lose some more too as they struggle on grass!


At least it keeps the league more interesting for the division.

Irish poor today although Jersey took their tries well - no set piece platform
Means Irish have nothing else. Full report to follow

Ealing, Jersay and Cov are probably harder away assignments than both Bedford and Notts.

Pirates is always hard for anyone.

Interesting thoughts there.

Coventry... a promoted club from ND1! Yes, in the middle of the winter when their pitch is just mud, but if you think Coventry away will be one of your top 4 hardest trips you will have a few more surprises along the way.

Bonus points could be important.

There are too many players in the squad who don’t have the necessary fire in the belly to grind out wins like this. there was too much quality in the Irish team to end up losing like we did. If we have three Mcnallys we would be comfortable in so many games. Until the club and squad management team can generate and nurture a steeliness within the squad, then we’ll struggle back in the prem if we got promoted.

We clearly have an injury issue with our backs but as forwards win games, we should have had enough in the tank to come away with a win.

Er, we’ve already played them away. League doesn’t lie either. We’re also missing nearly half our squad and concentrated outwide. Not too fussed about Bedford. Can’t remember the last team you beat us. 1976? Just a guess.

Irish are so far away from being a Premiership team that can compete. DK and LK need a plan B

Hopefully the lack of summer signings mean they’re saving their cash for next years recruitment. Or banking on a premiership ringfencing to include them

We got to see Saolo play the 2nd half. Is that value or im just in shock.

We’re also missing nearly half our squad looked a decent pack and 1st choice half backs and concentrated outwide. Not too fussed about Bedford Blues went to you with a weakened team and lost by 9 and I'm sure the slope will have a factor for your players who have never played on it but you are entitled to your opinion. Can’t remember the last team you beat us. 1976? Just a guesswho cares when the last time?.

Calm down and perhaps read the comments. Ealing will lose a few along the way so you just want to make sure you keep picking up bonus points.

Maybe give it a few days. Yes we deserved to lose. Yes Jersey were the better side. It's still painful

I’m very calm, interesting that you elect to commnet on this board on the one day we lose. Tanks for the irritating red comments as well, nice touch.

Just saw the jersey try from under their own posts, shambles of a defensive line. Doesn’t look like there was any thought to a defensive line if a team tries to run from deep. We had enough players but all scattered instead of up in one line

Still fuming over that try. That's the try that's shown me that if we go up (and right now it really is an if), unless it's ringfenced we'll be straight back down.

Heavy caveat that this view is as things currently stand, there is of course plenty of time to work on the defense.

How didn't we tackle their player when the ball went to ground IN THEIR OWN DEAD BALL LINE! Missing mulchrone a huge amount in the midfield and the lack of pace out wide makes us very vulnerable when teams break through. That try will certainly encourage future teams to attack us from the get go

Thanks for a great weekend all and forget the worries about promotion - you may well lose a couple of more games against teams like Pirates and Blues and certainly Jersey will be trying their hardest when we visit your place in January - but Ealing are your only real competition for top spot and they are likely to lose far more games than your lads. You have some genuinely class players like Myler and the blind side flanker on Saturday was a class apart. When you go up come and play us again pre-season - you'll probably have recruited a few more of our players by then to support Matt Rogerson like Wuss and Briz did when we beat them but there will be no ill will from Jersey. It was a great game of rugby on Saturday and I hope you have loads more close matches this season and thrive going forward - London Irish add so much to rugby and I hope in a small way Jersey adds a bit themselves. All the best cc



Don't kick it pick it up and GO FORWARD

I enjoyed the match (and the afters) very much even if the result didn't go our way.

Jersey proved what can be done with an aggressive defence and tenacity over the full 80 minutes. A valuable lesson to our boys - more so than thrashing the likes of Yorkshire et al.

Great length of the field try from Jersey and good continuity over multiple phases for that final score.

The frustrating thing from our perspective was that the first two Jersey tries were only possible because of players (Hearn/Ojo) biting in going for the big play when we had the numbers there to deal with it initially. Something to be said for the good old drift defence in situations like that.

Personally I thought they were awful. They got behind their boys, made heaps of noise and gee'd them on. Shocking behaviour!

I do remember it being a most pleasant ambush two seasons ago, when listening to the match Saturday on BBC radio Jersey it was quite obvious how louder the home crowd got, to get their team in front, you need to silence the crowd and we were not strong enough out wide or from the bench to do that. Fair play to the Reds.
