Competition fierce for starting spots

Norwich entertain Sudbury, who sit one place above them in the London 3NE table (kick-off 3pm).

The last time the sides met, two seasons ago, the away match ended with a draw with the last kick of the game so a close encounter is expected.

Competition for starting places is fierce and confidence in the squad is high after a much improved performance against Wymondham.

The pack is the same as played last week with Matt Cartwright keeping his position in the back row, while Snowling returns on the bench after injury.

In the backs, with David Smillie unavailable, Toby Neil gets the chance to show his pace on the wing to coach Simon Hill after some excellent games for the Lions.

An exhibition match of Tag rugby between Norwich and Sudbury Under-8s will take place just prior to the main event at 2.30pm.
