Swaffham were well beaten by North Walsham Raiders in their latest Eastern Counties One North fixture.

A 41-9 win for the hosts at Scottow propelled them back to second ahead of Diss Saracens who could only draw 15-15 against Norwich Medics.

The Raiders’ points came from tries by Will Haynes (2), Henry Hunt, Lee Thomson, Ted Morgan and Will Minchin with Morgan adding two penalties and Minchin kicking a penalty and a conversion.

Swaffham’s points all came from the boot of Ed Jones.

Swaffham, who remain two points clear of the bottom two, are at home to Norwich Medics on Saturday.
