Romford look for a fourth win


London Division 2NE

Chelmsford v Romford & GP (3pm)

Something has to give as these two sides both possess 100 per cent records after their first three matches of the new campaign.

Park put Saffron Walden to the sword last weekend, with Joe Howard claiming five of their 10 tries in a 68-8 romp.

Chelmsford were 31-15 winners at Woodford, meanwhile, and held Park to a 22-22 draw in the corresponding fixture last season.

London Division 3NE

Stowmarket v Campion

Both these sides will be looking to bounce back from defeats to register their second wins of the season.

Campion wasted good chances in a 31-12 home defeat against Wanstead, while Stowmarket were edged out 34-31 at Harlow.

Upminster v East London

It’s a similar story at Hall Lane as Upminster welcome newly promoted East London.

Both sides suffered their second defeat in three games last weekend; Upminster were edged out at table-topping Holt (31-25), while East lost 25-10 at South Woodham Ferrers.

And for those who want to get up-to-the-minute action, there will live updates and pictures from this game via Upminster’s Twitter page @UpminsterRugby!

Essex Division 1

Old Cooperians v Billericay

Scott Sarson’s last-gasp penalty earned Coopers a point against Clacton last weekend.

But they will be hoping for more as rivals Billericay come to St Mary’s Lane on the back of a 25-17 win over Pegasus.
