Worthing Raiders Rugby Club are set for a crunch match with Dorking next Saturday after a 30-12 defeat at Taunton Titans this afternoon.

The reverse saw Worthing drop to fourth from bottom in the National 2 South table and they are now just three points ahead of Dorking, who are in the relegation zone and picked up five points in a 27-14 win against Bury St Edmunds.

Raiders will seal their survival with a bonus-point win against Dorking, while a defeat could see them fall into the bottom three.

Worthing host fifth-from-bottom Clifton in their final game on April 30, when Dorking are away to leaders Cambridge.
