It was a strong start for Guernsey in the Nash Cup, with a 36-12 win from the Guernsey Vets team.

Guernsey were looking to make the most of the home advantage following red victories for Jersey in 2023.

The women's fixture is one that will go down in history as Guernsey brought home the win in a dramatic style.

Guernsey had lost 31-5 to Jersey in the 2023 Siam, but the 2024 Spring Insure Ladies Siam Cup came down to a last-minute penalty to secure the win.

Jersey added points to the board first with an early penalty, but a try from Captain, Kayleigh Oliver, put Guernsey 7-3 up midway through the first half.

As we reached half time, Jersey added more points to the board with their first try leaving it at 7-10.

Jersey came back strong in the second half with a second try, but Marni De Freitas Alves' broke the line making it 15-14.

In the last few minutes of the game, Guernsey were awarded a penalty. Guernsey's Chelsie Blondel was able to hold her nerve for the last kick of the game, leaving Guernsey with a 17-15 victory.

Captain, Kayleigh Oliver: "We worked really well as a team today, there were times where we were losing but we didn't drop our heads, we had each other's backs till the end, and that's what brought us home the win today."

The Guernsey Raiders had a 49-33 win in the Men's 2024 Spring Insure Siam Cup fixture.

They were looking to come back from a 42-25 loss last year, which they proved early on with Guernsey leading 28-14 at half time.

Ethan Smith and Hugo Culverhouse scored had early tries before Niall McGann also added to Guernsey's points in his debut Siam.

Ciaran McGann followed his brother's try before Jersey's Charlie Hubert added points to the scoreboard for Jersey with two tries.

In the second half, Ciaran McGann added more points for Guernsey to lead 42-14, with Jersey scoring two tries not long after.

A debut Siam try from Jamie Dunn brought Guernsey to a 49-33 victory over Jersey.

Guernsey's Director of Rugby, Jordan Reynolds: "We worked hard for this victory today, preparation for the Siam hasn't been easy, but bringing home the win makes all the hard work worth it".
