Jersey Reds Are Champions!

Jersey Reds have won the rugby Championship for the first time in the club's history.

A 43-15 victory over Ampthill was enough to seal the title on home turf.

The Reds had climbed to the top of the table with a vital win over league leaders Ealing last weekend.

 

They finished the season on 100 points  - two clear of Ealing.

Director of Rugby Harvey Biljon said he was 'immensely proud' of everyone.

Despite winning the Championship, the club cannot be promoted to the Premiership because of league rules on ground capacity.

There could still more silverware ahead for the islanders, who travel to meet Cornish Pirates in the semi-finals of the Championship Cup on Friday.
