Guernsey finished eighth at last weekend’s European Touch Championships in Wales. The island was one of 16 nations taking part in the biennial event which is the biggest touch competition in Europe and saw 52 teams compete over four days. Seeded ninth ahead of the tournament, the team eventually finished one place higher in eighth.

This year’s KPMG Touch Summer League saw the 29 teams taking part score more than 1,000 touchdowns over the 12 week competition. The season saw a number of changes for the sport with a new sponsor in KPMG, a new home at KGV and the introduction of a corporate league to encourage new players to take part.

Guernsey had to settle with just one victory in this year’s touch inter-insular as Jersey retained the title with victory in the ladies and mixed games. Unveiling Guernsey’s new KPMG-branded kit, the ladies were the first to play and Jersey’s defence proved impossible to break. They scored three times in the first half, the first coming from a switch five metres from the line, the second from a scoop and the third through a fast-paced attack.
