Not a lot you can do from 5m out when you play a side who always focus on the maul as their key weapon, where the Blues focus on other things with their limited time.

No other team in the league consistently concedes as many maul tries as us. Today, it cost us 4 tries and 3 yellow cards (during which jersey scored one of their 2 non maul tries). As I’ve said before, it’s really hard to win games when the other team are guaranteed 14-21 from mauls (albeit we did get one today).

Also sounded like the lineout was a shambles. We must’ve lost about 10 on our own throw and changing the hooker didn’t make much difference. We were missing our best lineout operator and it functioned ok in pre season so hopefully that was a one off.

4th maul try jersey 

Says a lot about Bedfords ability to defend it�£�£

Jokes aside. That was a great game that was not in the bag until the final few minutes. If the ref had have kept his cards in his pocket in the first half it could have been a different result.
They were harsh IMHO and why do you have to get a YC when a PT is awarded? And that comes from a red!!
Tackle Low!!!!!

1 game in, we have played away at one of the toughest places - not many win in Jersey, against a team known for its maul (I would say the best in the league at it) and also for their strong defence to which we scored 4 tries.

We seemed to lose a lot of players today very quickly to cards from the commentary, which sounded harsh refereeing as I didn't hear a lot of penalties being awarded against us.

On the flip side as well, we may concede a lot of maul tries but also how many other teams consistently run in the amount of tries from their own half.  Both require training, reality is there is no relegation and we are not aiming for top spot, so enjoy the tries we score.

FT Richmond 27 Nottingham 24
After going down to 13 men Mond were transformed. Outplayed by Nottingham till then. It’s a funny old game.
