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.

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.

Due to the state of the pitches and the weather forecast of more rain, only those with league fixtures should train, and off-pitch as much as possible, thank you.
