Diss aiming to keep up good work in cup

Following successive league victories Diss entertain Old Alleynians in the RFU Intermediate Cup second round tomorrow.
The Dulwich-based club play in London Two South West, exactly the same level as Diss. They also match their hosts with a similar record of four wins and three league defeats so far this season.
Like many of the Old Boy sides playing south of the River Thames, Old Alleynians enjoy playing an open and expansive game, throwing the ball wide at every opportunity. This should make for a very exciting and entertaining game with both clubs aspiring to play total, 15-man rugby.
Diss retain, for the most part, an unchanged team following their emphatic victory over Braintree last Saturday.
Tom Holt is unavailable and will be replaced on the wing by Matt Trede. If passed fit, Michael Fuller will also return to the back row. This will certainly introduce more of a presence at the breakdown, one area where Diss only achieved parity against Braintree last weekend.

Whilst the league campaign is paramount in coach Roger Coombs planning and thinking, a successful cup run would certainly boost confidence and maintain the winning ethos now being established under the new coaching regime.
