Both teams’ throwing options were limited due to the strong gusty winds and scoring was low in all quarters, with the Jets adding touchdowns in each half.

Despite getting yardage in a few drives the Giants were unable to capitalise on field position to get points on the board.

“The windy conditions made our passing game difficult and we couldn’t get the running game going.

“We now turn our attention to training next Sunday at 10am at Lime Park where we still welcome anyone to come along and join us.”
