Guernsey Raiders newcomers having welcome impact on island squad

Dan Hill scored a try on his debut for Guernsey

Guernsey Raiders new signings have made a good impact on the side after the club's first two matches, according to head coach Jordan Reynolds.

Guernsey have maximum points after their opening two games and are second in National Three London.

The likes of Luke Skovronek, Dan Hill and Sam Steventon have all featured for the Green and Whites this season.

"They're settling in pretty well, getting some match games and ticking us along at the moment," Reynolds said.

All three will be in contention to play when Guernsey face Westcombe Park on Saturday, with New Zealander Ken Hellier also getting close to being fit enough to make his debut.

"Sam Steventon had a run out last week and he looks like a really promising front row for us," Reynolds added to BBC Radio Guernsey.

"It's great as front rows are really difficult to get, especially around these parts.

"Dan Hill's settled in pretty well, he's a young guy and he's still learning, but he's got a good carrying game.

"What's going to be valuable for us this season is having a pretty big squad that can play at this level."
