Latest News & Match Reports
Raiders travel to Bristol this Saturday to take on Clifton RFC for the first fixture of the 2015/16 campaign. The League Fixture Secretary sent us there at the start of the 2011/12 season. We returned victorious 8-28. This match will be the 11th between the clubs. It will be our only visit to Bristol this season as Dings Crusaders are relegated.
Clifton RFC was founded in1872 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 The Kings Arms again! The club has played at a number of different locations throughout North Bristol, but never apparently in Clifton itself. Since1976 the club has been based at the southerly end of Cribbs Causeway.

CLUB MEMBERS - YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
It is now less than a month before RWC 2015 and just days before our 2015-16 season gets underway.
Our clubhouse and grounds need a spruce up and to achieve this, work parties are planned for all sections of the club over the coming days.
Starting from 10.00 a.m. on Saturday 22/08 members are encouraged to come and help with some decorating, cleaning, tidying and general maintenance type work.
Players from our Senior men (including Raiders), Women and Colts teams and parents/guardian of those in our mini and junior sections are all being asked by the section chairmen to help with a few hours of assistance. Non players and Social members are also encouraged to join in and get involved.
For those able to offer help, please let your team/section Chairmen know when you can attend. For others, please contact me on 07888764239 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when you can attend.
Work Party days and times:

For those able to give up some time during the week days (Monday to Friday) your further help in the coming week will be gratefully received. Please ask for Ralph who will give directions between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If we get a good response, we will be able to get the various jobs around the club and our grounds done in good time for the start of the new season and to welcome both new and existing members to The Rugby Park.
Also, please be aware that the club is planning a number of activities and events promoting the club, our sport and Rugby World Cup 2015 in the coming weeks to our local community. Help with these will also be needed. We will also be providing extensive coverage of games throughout RWC. Let’s get behind England’s campaign and fill the clubhouse for as many games as we can. Please look out for further details.
