GUERNSEY rugby players will feel the wrath of their coach this week.

Although his side had claimed a crucial victory as they look to retain their National League status in their inaugural season at this level, Jordan Reynolds was absolutely seething at the final whistle at Footes Lane on Saturday after seeing the green-and-whites come inexplicably close to throwing away all the hard work of an excellent first half.

Most of his initial utterances were unprintable, but when asked if he will take his anger out on his troops in training, his answer was emphatic.

‘I’m going to bring a thunderstorm down on them this week,’ Reynolds growled.
