Beccles hope to be Streets ahead of rivals

LONDON 2NE: Beccles travel to London tomorrow to face fellow newcomers to the division, Old Streetonians.

Like Beccles, Old Streetonians are finding their feet at the wrong end of the table. Unlike Beccles however, they have played teams at the lower end of the table so far this season, so Beccles have targeted this as a crucial game to win.

Skipper Lake and the club as a whole are in a very positive mood this week following last week's Intermediate Cup win against London 2NW leaders St Albans and also by the addition of a key new member to the club. With only Payne unavailable for selection this week, Lake will be selecting from a near full strength squad where the competition for places will be high.

Hinsley and Rix are likely to make a return to the squad and make up a formidable back-row along side Wilson. With Wilson making bigger impacts weekly following his move to number eight he will be a key player for Beccles on Saturday.

Outside the pack Murray will continue at fly half after a good performance last week and will look to bring some attacking edge to the play. Teenager Davey-Durak is likely to retain his place on the wing after impressing last week in the cup.
