Diss face what could be the defining moment of an exciting London 2NE campaign tomorrow when they visit title rivals Chelmsford.
They put the Essex side to the sword at Mackenders earlier in the season but are expecting a much tougher fixture this time around.
Chelmsford have not lost a league match since that defeat and go into tomorrow's match five points ahead of Diss after winning their game in hand 44-34 at Saffron Walden at the weekend while their opponents were beating Norwich in the Woodforde's Norfolk Senior Cup semi-finals.
Coach Roger Coombs is able to select a strong side that reflects the return to fitness of a number of players and a continuity of planning leading up to the final three league games of the season.
Warren Wilby returns to partner Josh Ludkin in the centre while club captain Giles West is able to finally return to his preferred position on the wing, allowing Matt Trede the opportunity to attack from full back.

Fraser Hall and Michael Fuller return to the back row following a week's rest to restore the dominant Diss forward machine to full strength.

They will be searching for a bonus point win in order to draw level with Chelmsford in the table and hope that the final two home league games against Campion and Basildon will culminate in an automatic promotion place. Failing that Diss are positively placed for a play-off encounter at the end of the season.
