Guernsey Raiders Trounce Jersey In The Siam

The Guernsey Raiders beat Jersey by a convincing 62-26 in the Siam Cup at the Stade Santander.

Guernsey had a lot to live up to as they hadn't won on Jersey soil since 2007.

But they had the upper hand against the Jersey Reds Athletic in the first half, which ended 26-19 at the break, and they stormed to victory in the second.

The 2021 game on Saturday (14 May) saw the Guernsey Raiders scoring 10 tries.

 

Jersey's Head Coach Myles Landick congratulated his side's opponents;

The roles were very much reversed earlier in the day, as Jersey's women ended hopes of 10 straight wins for Guernsey by beating them 40-0.

Jersey's vets dominated Guernsey in the Nash Cup, with an 81-5 victory.

Former England rugby union player Matt Banahan came out of retirement for the occasion.

The 2022 Siam Cup is played on 21 May in Guernsey.
