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.
