Bishop's Stortford RFC v Worthing Raiders
31st January 2015 kick off 2pm
By Peter Gavin

Bolstered by the nine try-romp last Saturday against Lydney (59-5), Raiders venture up North...well to Hertfordshire.... to take on Bishop's Stortford RFC.
Worthing have played at Silver Leys five times before, in the days of London Division 1 (level 5).
Our last visit was on 27th October 2007, when we returned victorious after a close call, 10-18.
Raiders won a very tight encounter, 24-22 (4 tries a-piece) at Roundstone Lane earlier this season.

Background stuff
Bishop's Stortford RFC was founded in 1920 (the same year as ourselves!) and started life at a ground in Dunmow Road. They moved 8 years later to their existing base, Silvey Leys. The clubhouse was renovated and re-opened in 1985.
When the league system was introduced in 1987 Bishop's Stortford RFC was placed in third London tier. Promotion to London 2 North followed the following season. It then took until 2003, after a number of near misses, to win promotion to London Division 1. Promotion to National League 2 South was secured in April 2013.

Worthing Raiders 59-5 Lydney
Report by Victor Sye

This was not a pantomime, but it was a hugely entertaining show from the whole Raiders cast who returned to winning ways with a nine try haul against Lydney.

Raiders were lively straight from the off and bagged their first try after only 4 minutes when they kicked for the corner having been awarded a penalty. Raiders took the ball cleanly and drove for the line before the ball came out and was passed along the line to Alex Nielsen who ran over from five metres to score the first of his three tries. Matt McLean converted.

Raiders continued on the offensive and only four minutes later after a break away from Stan South and some brilliant interplay involving the backs and forwards, Matt McLean sprinted over to score a try which he successfully converted after 8 minutes.

Raiders were now in total control and having worked the ball up field from their own 22 metre line through some brilliant offloads amongst the forwards followed by a couple of piercing drives, Kieran Leeming passed to Finlay Coxon-Smith who sprinted twenty three metres to score a try on 14 minutes. Matt McLean successfully converted.

TAUNTON TITANS 30 v WORTHING RAIDERS 17
Report by Matt Farnes

After 5 consecutive wins against 3 of the top 6, the Raiders travelled to Taunton with hopes of making it 6 from 6 and moving up at least another place in the league. The Raiders made three forced changes to the team that beat Chinnor at home last weekend. Alex Nielsen replaced the injured Harry Forrest on the wing, Paul Burns taking the suspended Liam Perkins place in the squad with Sam Hewick moving into the backrow and finally a return to the first team after a 4 year absence saw Dan Peach replace Calum Waters at scrum-half who was unavailable due to a family holiday.

Although the recent weather was not ideal, it was a clear dry day and the pitch was good to start but would definitely rip up later on in the match.

Taunton Titans RFC v Worthing Raiders 17th January 2015 3pm
Written by Peter Gavin

Raiders visit Taunton Titans this Saturday for the return match following Titans visit to Roundstone Lane in early October. Taunton returned to Somerset with a 27-29 victory after a last play drop goal clinched the win!

Background stuff
Taunton RFC was founded in 1875 so it is up there with the oldest clubs, having been formed before the likes of London Scottish, Cardiff, Rosslyn Park and Saracens. In those days matches were played 20 a side.
The club moved to their extensive facility known as Hyde Park (Rugby ground, Conference and Banqueting centre) in 2001, having played at Priory Park for the previous 66 years.
The Bridgwater and Avon canal and the river Tone are nearby, as is the M5 motorway. The surroundings are an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Historic Taunton (records go back to before 700AD) is the County town of Somerset, home to Somerset County Cricket Club and 40 Commando Royal Marines. Taunton Cider should also get a mention!
The team were named 'BBC West Team of the Year' in 2008-9 when they went unbeaten.
King's College a co-educational, secondary day and boarding school is situated in the town and has a fine sporting and academic reputation.
