In-form Diss face another big test tomorrow when they welcome Division 2NE leaders Chelmsford to Mackenders.
Since losing narrowly to South Woodham Ferrers in mid October, Diss have won four league games on the trot, with their most recent success an impressive 33-14 victory at Norwich.
They also went close to a century of points as they thrashed Swaffham in the Norfolk Cup last weekend so they will be in good heart for a match against a side who have won all but one of their matches so far.
Diss have have shown an emerging confidence over the last month and will certainly be up for the challenge.
Coach Roger Coombs is able to pick a strong side, reflecting the consistency of selection over the month of November.
You may also want to watch:
Michael Fuller returns to the side following injury and will certainly add to the abrasive nature of an already dominant pack of forwards. Tom Holt is unavailable and will be replaced by Matt Trede, who also featured in the Norfolk Cup win last week. The midfield combination of Warren Wilby and Josh Ludkin and the half back pairing of Jamie Burroughs and Jack Peacock will without doubt cause Chelmsford issues, coupled with the try scoring potential of Giles West and Gus McGrath.
Mackenders has without doubt become a fortress this season and Chelmsford will need to be at their best to defeat a Diss side that is not only climbing the league table but is also playing outstanding total rugby.
