PUBLISHED: 08:13 09 November 2017
A 41-9 win over Swaffham at Scottow on Saturday propelled North Walsham Raiders back to second in the table.
Swaffham took an early lead with a penalty but the Raiders hit back when Tom Coller took a lineout catch and the drive ended with Will Haynes claiming the try.
A penalty from Ted Morgan stretched the lead but two successful penalties by Ed Jones put Swaffham back in front.
This served as a wake-up call and replica of the first catch and drive ended in the same way, Haynes making the touchdown. New scrum-half Lee Thomson then looped round for his debut try and an 18-9 lead at the break.
In the second half there were further tries for Morgan, Henry Hunt and Will Minchin, with Morgan slotting over a couple of penalties and Minchin a conversion.
North Walsham Warriors lost to Wymondham II 24-27 (Sam Flanagan 2, Greg Wills and George Masdin).
