Rochford Hundred hope to return to action against Norwich
ROCHFORD Hundred will be hoping to resume their London Two North East campaign away at Norwich tomorrow.
Rochford have been frustrated by two successive postponements and will be desperate to get back in action this weekend.
Hundred, who currently sit third in the table, have won their last five games and will be looking to secure another victory against a Norwich side who are 10th in the 12 team table.
But their first team manager Graham Pratt is expecting a difficult afternoon in Norfolk.
“It will be a difficult match as Norwich have managed to play more games since Christmas than us and we will have a long journey to contend with too,” said Pratt.
“However, the boys are only too happy to get back into action and the team looks strong enough on paper to achieve a good result.”
Fifth placed South Woodham Ferrers have also triumphed in their last five games and are travel to the team just below them in the standings, Holt, this weekend.
Seventh placed Basildon have one just once in six games but will be confident of getting back on track at second from bottom Stowmarket.
In London Three North East, bottom of the table Canvey Island, who have lost all 16 of their matches this season, are at home to third placed Old Cooperians.
Essex One leaders Billericay take on Old Gravesendians in an RFU Junior Vase clash which will be played at Saracens’ Allianz Park home and victory would take the team to within two wins of a Twickenham final.
In Essex Two, third placed Pegasus Palmerians are at bottom of the table Brightlingsea while sixth placed Stanford le Hope are at Kings Cross Steelers, the team just above them in the table.
