Norwich effectively start the second half of their London 2NE season tomorrow when they play their return game against Cantabrigian at Beeston Hyrne.

Disappointing though the result was at Eton Manor last week it was no surprise that North Walsham struggled with a much changed squad.

Two local under-10 teams have had their first taste of professional rugby after taking to the pitch at the home of Aviva Premiership giants Leicester Tigers.

Norwich Union suffered away day misery as uncharacteristic errors contributed to a 24-22 defeat at Diss Saracens.

Holt were edged out in a tightly fought contest against fellow top four side Ely after being outscored by four tries to three.

The large home crowd were hoping to see a repeat of the Woodbridge win over Southwold in the Suffolk Cup the previous weekend.

If the league leaders came to Norwich thinking that a visit to Beeston Hyrne was going to be a pushover they were in for a rude shock.

Diss produced a performance that again highlighted the fact that when playing at their best they can compete with the most accomplished sides in the league.

Wymondham got back to winning ways with a convincing victory at the league’s bottom side, who remain on minus five points.

Norwich face their toughest challenge of the season so far tomorrow as they try to maintain their unbeaten home run in London Two North East against leaders Rochford Hundred.

After their disappointing performance and result at Scottow last week, North Walsham will have to regroup quickly to get back on track.
