Lethal Nottingham Rugby trio backed to bounce back

TIM Streather has backed Nottingham's lethal trio of David Jackson, Rhys Crane and Alex Lewington to bounce-back from their frustration against Bedford on Sunday.

TO HOT TO HANDLE: David Jackson was denied a try against Bedford but Tim Streather says there is no stopping the Green and Whites most prolific scorer. PIC: Steve Galloway.

All three were typically menacing in attack and all three managed to touch down, but each time their try celebrations were silenced by the video referee.

After Streather ignited proceedings with a try on 19 minutes David Jackson thought he notched up try 101 for the club, breaking through the Blues' defence to power over from close range.

On the video replay, however, it showed the Green and Whites' most prolific try scorer had lost the ball in his wriggling attempt to plant it.

Winger Lewington was next to be denied when replays showed that he just stepped into touch as he raced free down the right flank.

Crane had a second-half try, and what would have been a bonus-point effort, waved away after failing to ground the ball having done all the hard work to palm and skip his way through a line of desperate Blues defenders.

Nottingham may have been lassoed by technology, but as the leading try-scoring side in the Championship, Streather said they will not be slowed down for long.

The Green and Whites have landed 50 tries, four more than league leaders Newcastle.

"Those boys have been deadly all year; all three have come up with plenty of tries," Streather said.
