Guernsey Raiders 'blew Bracknell apart' for third successive win

Guernsey Raiders
Guernsey Raiders have equalled their points total from last season with nine games remaining

Guernsey Raiders head coach Jordan Reynolds says his side "blew Bracknell apart" in their 27-8 home triumph.

The result means the Channel Islanders are up to sixth in National Three London, winning three games in a row for the first time this season.

"It's been about finding our feet for most of the season, but we're starting to play pretty intelligently," Reynolds told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"I think overall we're really starting to understand how we want to play."

He added: "We blew Bracknell apart for 80 minutes of that game and we just controlled everything we wanted to do."

Raiders only avoided relegation on the final day of last season but are now 19 points ahead of Wimbledon in eighth and well clear of the drop zone.

However, Reynolds' squad has been dealt a blow, with open-side flanker Leon Gardner set to be out for some time with a knee injury.

"He'd just come back from a slight twinge and in his second training session it looks like he's done medial damage on his other knee, which is a massive step back for him," said Reynolds.
