Guernsey Raiders boss Jordan Reynolds says the increased depth of his squad is helping them to compete at the top of National Three London.

Guernsey are level with the leaders after five wins from six games, despite a number of players missing.

"We've had anything up to eight or nine players that would normally be in the first team that we haven't been able to pick from," he told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"It shows our depth is a lot stronger and we're able to cope with it."

Guernsey, who are third on points difference, take on leaders Hertford on Saturday

But Reynolds said his side are still able to improve having had chances to score more tries in their bonus-point win at Sutton and Epsom on Saturday.

"We all know we're not playing the best rugby that we can, we understand that, but in all fairness teams that believe they should be peaking by the fifth game of the season are disillusioned," he said.

"We need to keep winning and peaking around January and February where we have to finish off the season.

"But we're building very nicely at the moment, we're pretty happy with where we're at."
