Conor O'GormanSean Currie and Conor O'Gorman both scored half centuries as Ireland U15's remained top of the European Championship table with a convincing 90 run win (D/L) over Jersey in a rain affected encounter at Rugby.

Clontarf's Currie had an international debut to remember as he top scored with 84 from 111 balls (7 fours, 1 six). sharing a match winning fourth wicket partnership of 157 with skipper Conor O'Gorman.

The Leinster all-rounder also batted aggressively to make 77 from 89 balls (5 fours, 2 sixes).

The Irish innings tailed off disappointingly in the search for quick runs, as 202 for 3 became 235 for 9 in their 43 overs - 15/20 runs short of the target wished for by coaches Simon Johnston and Stephen Moreton.

It mattered little as the Irish attack settled down after a nervy start with 22 extras, which saw Jersey reach 51-1 in 14 overs.

Graham Kennedy dismissed Ben Ward (19) just before another break for rain, and when play resumed Jersey now needed 193 for 34 overs.

They were never remotely in the hunt though as three wickets for Harry Tector (3-18), together with wickets for Stuart Nelson, O'Gorman and Aaron O'Neill sealed the win.
