Yorkshire Carnegie Head Coach Bryan Redpath, said he was pleased with the effort from his side following their win over Jersey at Headingley Carnegie.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds after the game Redpath said: “It was a hard fought victory.  The first half we didn’t control the game very well and we were a little bit edgy and especially with that wind we didn’t know whether to kick or play sometimes.  

"But on the whole great character from the boys in the second half and we believed we could win the game and we went out there and did that and there was an opportunity right at the end to get more points.  The group have got a lot of learning to do and I think they are getting there.

"Jersey are a very physical side.  We didn’t handle them well on certain occasions there were some little things that we should have controlled better.  There were line outs that we perhaps should have driven, we gave four penalties away from five metre scrums and at times we were compounding error after error and that’s where we need to refocus and not necessarily blame anyone or have an excuse.  I’m delighted with the effort, it’s two wins out of two and we will move on.”
