Clifton RFC travel from Bristol for their 6th visit to Roundstone Lane for the last league fixture of the season. Regulars will recall that Raiders travelled to play Clifton to kick-off the seasonís
campaign in early September, we returned from Bristol with an L, 31-18.
Clifton RFC was founded in 1872 and is the 22nd oldest club in England. The founding meeting took place at 'The Kings Arms' on Blackboys Hill in Clifton. The pub is still there although it has been rebuilt and changed name a few times. It is now The Kings Arms again! The club has played at a number of different locations throughout North Bristol, but never apparently in Clifton itself.

Raiders secured their place in National League 2 South next season after a devastating second half display against local survival rivals Dorking on Saturday.
In a proverbial game of two halves it was Dorking who took the honours in the first half scoring the first points of the game after only three minutes from a Matthew Noble penalty conversion.
They extended their lead a minute later when a fairly innocuous overhead clearance downfield by Dorking was fumbled by the usually rock solid Liam Perkins and winger Benjamin Marfo pounced on the ball on the Raidersí ten metre line to sprint up the pitch unopposed to score a try. Matthew Noble again converted.

Worthing Raiders v Dorking
Saturday 23rd April
3pm Kick Off
Raiders Squad v Dorking
This weekend we host Dorking in the Raiders second to last home game of the season. With only 3 points separating the two teams and the relegation zone not to distant, the Raiders will be looking to pick up a bonus point win! We see the return of captain Scott Barlow who will partner up with James Arthur in the second row. Alex Neilsen returns to the wing with Matt McLean moving to fullback. The home crowd were incredible when the Raiders beat Canterbury and they will be hoping for the same amount of support and noise this weekend! Good luck Raiders! RAID ON!
The U12s made the long trip to the West Country on Saturday to play Taunton RFC U12s in a curtain raiser before the Titans v Raiders game.
The team was a mix of A and B squad players and was a great opportunity for the coaches to develop some of our less experienced players as well as give some of our A players the opportunity to play against stronger opposition than they get locally.
Taunton U12s are a very strong side who earlier this season had won the Land Rover Cup competition at Exeter Chiefs and who we had only narrowly beaten in a curtain raiser in our home fixture before Christmas.
We knew we would be in for a tough time with only 11 players and no subs.
