Wymondham's recent defensive solidity will be put to the test tomorrow when they visit Upminster.
Having kept clean sheets in each of their last two outings, Wymondham face an Upminster side with a formidable record at home. Their pitch has a considerable slope which they utilise effectively, as Wymondham found to their cost last season, losing 15-8 and surrendering their 27-match unbeaten record.
Wymondham make six changes, the most significant of which sees Mike Rout take over the captain's mantle from Andrew Nelson, who has family commitments. Pat Reed, who came off the bench last weekend, holds onto the No 9 jersey with utility back Stephen Simms partnering Barry O'Sullivan in the centre. Ian Harris moves back to his favoured wing position. Teenager David Martin returns to the bench after two promising outings in the last fortnight.
The second and third teams both have home games and the club will be hoping for a repeat of last weekend, when all three sides recorded victories, amassing a total of 102 points for and just 12 points against.
