St Mary’s Lane club 10 points from safety with three games remaining
Old Cooperians saw their hopes of remaining in London Two North East suffer a major blow after losing 26-10 at Norwich.
The St Mary’s Lane outfit made the lengthy trip to Norfolk fully aware of how tough it would be against a Norwich team fourth in the table.
Despite going down to the hosts, Coops showed good resilience to restrict Norwich to just four tries, while scoring two of their own.
The defeat, though, leaves the St Mary’s Lane side rooted to the bottom of the table and 10 points from safety.
Coops, though, do have a game in hand over those above them and have a maximum of 15 points left to play for.
The St Mary’s Lane side are without a fixture this weekend as the league takes a week off for Easter.
Coops are next in action at home to Chelmsford on April 7, when even a win might not be enough to keep them from avoidng a return to London Three level.
