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