Rochford Hundred set for struggling Stowmarket
ROCHFORD Hundred will be confident of grabbing another victory when they host Stowmarket in London Two North East this weekend.
Third placed Rochford have triumphed in nine of their last 10 games while second from bottom Stowmarket have lost their last three outings.
Rochford have made just one enforced change to their starting line-up for the game with Andy Baker coming in to the back row in place of the unavailable Jack Knowles.
And their first team manager Graham Pratt is expecting a difficult afternoon.
“Stowmarket will be a hard task as they have everything to play for to avoid regulation,” said Pratt.
“They also presented us with quite a few problems earlier on in the season.”
Stowmarket were beaten 17-0 by South Woodham Ferrers in their previous outing and fifth placed Woodham will be confident of another victory when they host bottom of the table Lowestoft tomorrow.
Eighth placed Basildon travel to Saffron Walden, who sit second, on the back of two successive defeats.
However, bottom of the table Canvey Island have yet to win in London Three North East this term and they travel to the team one place higher than them, Wymondham, this weekend.
Wymondham won 28-25 at Canvey earlier on in the season and are now 26 points above the already relegated Islanders.
Billericay hope to take Canvey’s place next season and are currently second in Essex One.
They were beaten 22-9 by Clacton last weekend and will now be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to fifth placed Bancroft.
Billericay sit two points behind leaders Dagenham but do still have a game in hand.
