Holt travel to Romford to take on Campion tomorrow still smarting from their defeat at the hands of local rivals Norwich last weekend.

Having been in a winning position Holt allowed Norwich to hit back with 22 unanswered points after the break to gift the visitors all the London 2NE points.

Things will not get any easier tomorrow when Holt travel to newly promoted Campion who remain unbeaten after two games. The Campion pitch is, in itself, very challenging with a significant slope from the 22-metre line to the opposite goal-line.

On their last meeting in October 2011 Holt scrambled a lucky 7-10 win after trailing 7-5 until the dying minutes. Ed Steed and the team would be happy to come home with a similar score but will have been working hard in training this week and hope to put right the wrongs from last weekend and record a resounding win.

They should at least be boosted by their performance in their opening home game when they won 30-0 at Basildon.

Holt seconds, now playing in Eastern Counties 2N, welcome unbeaten Broadland Gt Yarmouth to Bridge Road tomorrow. Having recorded a hard-fought win at Watton last weekend captain Phil Davies will be hoping that his absence will not be detrimental. Vice-captain Ben Harvey takes over as skipper and will be looking to guide the team to victory. This will be no easy task as the Owls find themselves playing Broadland's first team for the first time in a competitive league fixture.

Holt thirds find themselves back in action with a tough fixture against Beccles seconds at Beef Meadow. Captain Steve Tagg will be looking to improve on an opening day defeat at Wymondham where his team performed better than the final scoreline suggested. Once again though playing a second XV will challenge the Holt third string to the limit.
