Bottom of the table Rochford Hundred aiming for double over Ruislip
BOTTOM of the table Rochford Hundred will be hoping history can repeat itself when they travel to Ruislip tomorrow.
Hundred have triumphed in just one of their 15 games so far this season.
But that triumph came against Ruislip, who they beat 46-17 in their fourth game of the campaign.
And Rochford’s first team manager Graham Pratt would love a similar score-line on Saturday.
“It will be a big ask to achieve another big result at Ruislip but the team needs to start getting into a winning mode again and quickly,” said Pratt.
“They’re the only side we have beaten this season and it would be nice to do it again.”
However Rochford, who have not won in 11 games, will again have to make changes to their starting line-up for the game.
Lloyd O'Connor is out injured, meaning Dan Bracknell steps in to scrum half and Dylan Boxtel comes in at stand off to replace the unavailable Dan Needham.
Jack Hall plays on the wing after returning from injury and will be hoping to help his secure a much needed victory.
Basildon, who have not triumphed in seven games, remain just one point and place above Rochford in the relegation zone and will also be seeking a return to winning at ninth placed Romford & Gidea Park.
In London Three North East, league leaders South Woodham Ferrers face a huge game against second placed Norwich.
The two teams are currently locked level on 42 points at the top of the table and Woodham will be hoping to secure a fifth straight win.
At the other end of the league, second from bottom Canvey Island will be confident of victory when they travel to rock bottom East London who have lost all 12 of their matches so far this season.
Seventh placed Billericay will also be hopeful of winning in Essex One against struggling Burnham In Essex Two, fifth placed Pegaus Palmerians are at home to second placed Writtle and Stanford le Hope, who are sixth, host Phantoms.
