Jackson: A win for the ages

GREEN and Whites stalwart David Jackson says Sunday's stunning 63-7 demolition of Bristol was one the most "amazing experiences" in his 11 seasons with the club.

Jackson BristolA day that Jackson (pictured) said started like any other, quickly turned into one of the most remarkable in club history after captain Brent Wilson crossed for the first try after 15 minutes.

Wilson grabbed a first half brace to lead the forwards' domination of the contest before the backs took over the try-scoring spree by running in five after the break. Winger Rhys Crane shone with a double, shattering Bristol spirits in the process with a dashing 95m effort to start the second half.

"It's 80 of the best minutes that we have had for a while and definitely one of the most amazing experiences I've had in rugby," Jackson said.

"It had everything, a mixture of good team play with forwards doing their thing and a bit of individual brilliance thrown in there as well. Take Duffey's try for example, it was a great break by Arlidge after taking the high ball and fantastic work by Duffey to finish it off.

"There was a good feeling before the game as normal, the warm up was same as always, so there wasn't anything different about the game going into it.

"We just clicked, didn't make mistakes and were clinical virtually every time we got into the 22. Everything that could have gone right, went right for us."

Jackson heralded the forward pack for the setting the platform in the first half.

In a near perfect display, Nottingham scored three times from their first three set pieces indie the 22.

"It always helps when you have three push over tries and a counter-attack try to open a 28-0 lead at half time," Jackson said.

Nottingham players we afforded time to savour victory with light recovery on Monday, but attention has quickly turned to the top of the table clash with Newcastle at Kingston Park on Friday.

"The thing we have to do is back this up against the Falcons," Jackson said.

"It's a great confidence boost but the test for all individuals and teams is to do it all again."
