Romford look to keep run going

London Division 2NE

Romford & Gidea Park (8-0-0) v Lowestoft (4-0-4)

Romford go in search of their ninth successive league win at Crow Lane this weekend.

A late Rhys Davies try clinched a 12-11 success at Hampstead, ending their 100 per cent record.

Victory kept Park nine points clear of the pack but coach Mark Collins said: “It’s a good league and we want to move forward. We know what’s coming.”

Division 3NE

Campion (1-0-7) v Sudbury (3-0-5)

Campion dropped to the bottom of the table following defeat at Wymondham.

They felt hard done by in the 29-11 reverse and will be smarting as Sudbury visit Cottons Park.

Harlow (7-0-1) v Upminster (4-0-4)

Upminster suffered their first home defeat of the season at the hands of a strong Stowmarket side.

And they face the difficult trip to high-flying Harlow looking to avoid successive losses for the first time this season.

Essex Division 1

Bancroft (3-0-2) v Old Cooperians (2-2-2)

Cooperians put basement boys Writtle to the sword with a nine-try display at St Mary’s Lane last weekend.

But they will find it tougher against a Bancroft side, who suffered only their second defeat of the campaign at Pegasus last weekend.

Nathaniel John returned to action off the bench last weekend, following his shoulder injury, and promptly received a yellow card.
