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