IN what had the potential to be a 金光佛论坛榖anana skin金光佛论坛 game in Jersey RFC Women金光佛论坛檚 march to Women金光佛论坛檚 NC 2 South East (South) glory, Simon Le Moignan金光佛论坛檚 team displayed all the traits required of a side with aspirations of climbing the ranks of the English rugby union system.

Second-placed Seaford travelled to Jersey with high hopes of closing the gap to the runaway Caesareans, but the hosts were in no mood to give them a sniff.

A well-rounded performance, again underlined by a dominant defence, steered the hosts to a 35-12 victory at the newly-named CoinShares Park, in front of an impressed home crowd.

Captain Katie de la Cloche was proud of her side, especially in a position 金光佛论坛渨here every team is gunning for you.金光佛论坛

Managing a lead over the chasing pack is never an easy proposition, but the veteran forward believes her squad are 金光佛论坛渆mbracing the challenge.金光佛论坛

金光佛论坛淲e were really strong defensively the whole game,金光佛论坛 she said.

金光佛论坛淭hey managed to grab a couple of quick tries created through breakaway pace, but other than that, we were pushing them back every single time and really limited their ability to make up metres.

金光佛论坛淚t can be quite challenging being at the top of the table, because every other team is gunning to beat you.

金光佛论坛淲e have a target on our backs. Seaford came over with every belief they could beat us, so to remain focused on the task in hand and get a big victory was great.

金光佛论坛淚t is a good feeling to be at the top obviously, but it is the hardest place to be.

金光佛论坛淭his win was really important. We are in a great position now and have built a nice little cushion between us and them.

金光佛论坛淚f we play like we did, we will be very hard to beat and should be in a strong place come the back end of the season.金光佛论坛

Jersey have reaped the rewards of rugby金光佛论坛檚 growing popularity amongst women in the United Kingdom.

Participation levels within the Island side have increased and many fresh faces have joined the journey within the St Peter club for the current season.

While bleeding in fresh talent into the squad brings its own challenge, Jersey金光佛论坛檚 captain has enjoyed seeing locals embracing the game and joining her team金光佛论坛檚 ranks.

De la Cloche added: 金光佛论坛淲e have welcomed a lot of new girls into the squad this season, who haven金光佛论坛檛 been around rugby very long.

金光佛论坛淚t has been really refreshing to see how much they have enjoyed getting stuck in and their willingness to learn.

金光佛论坛淭here are a handful of us who have quite a lot of experience and we are mixing in some fresh faces who are still learning the basics.

金光佛论坛淚t has been important to find the balance in our play. Sometimes it can be easy to overcomplicate things, but we need to make sure some of the newer players are doing all the basics right and continue to develop.

金光佛论坛淲e have already seen how much they have learned over the course of the season and for some of the older heads in the team, we want to ensure that continues and that they learn the core skills needed in each match. 金光佛论坛

Next up for the Caesareans is a trip to Crawley Ladies this coming Sunday, who have struggled this season, with only two wins from eight played this season.
