Tom Margetson starts at Tight head Prop with Dan Sargent on the bench. Dan Peach comes in at Scrum Half and Kieran Leeming moves out to Fly Half, whilst Sean Richardson returns to the bench.

Bury St Edmunds RFC, promoted into the league this season, pay their first visit to Roundstone Lane for a league fixture. Raiders headed to East Anglia in October for the ‘away leg’ and returned to the South Coast pointless (25-11).
History & Background stuff
The club was founded in 1925 as Bury & West Suffolk RFC. Post war players used to gather and practice at Culford School. By 1963 the Club regularly fielded 4 teams from its new home, at the ‘Haberden’, with 3 pitches and a small clubhouse.
During the 1970s the Club rebuilt its playing facilities and raised funds to build a larger clubhouse, further extended in the late 1980s. In 2006, with the aid of a grant from the R.F.U. the Club added a state-of-the-art ‘All Weather Pitch’ to the facilities. Youth and Mini rugby was also introduced.

Worthing Raiders lost to Southend Saxons for the second time this season in a poor spectacle on a sticky pitch which deteriorated throughout the game.
The defeat was more disappointing because Southend were lying five places below Raiders in the relegation zone of National League 2 South and came into the game on the back of six straight defeats.
In what proved to be a fairly dire first half, Southend opened the scoring through a Bradley Burr penalty conversion in the 4th minute.
Matt McLean levelled the score in the 9th minute with a penalty conversion.
Southend responded a minute later when their scrum half put in a grub kick towards the Worthing line and their wing forward Christopher Shields won the chase to score the try from which Raiders Matt Farnes was unlucky to receive a yellow card.
