There is a limited programme at the weekend after three call-offs in RFU knock-out competitions.

Five games involving local sides were scheduled to take place in the first round of the Intermediate Cup, the Senior Vase and the Junior Vase, but only two were still on today.

Thetford host Essex side Maldon in Senior Vase and Beccles are due to visit Harwich and Dovercourt in the junior competition, but Norwich, Southwold and West Norfolk have all been handed byes into the second round.

Norwich were due to welcome London 2NE colleagues Harlow to Beeston Hyrne but the visitors opted to concede, citing an administrative error.

Southwold's trip to Cheshunt and West Norfolk's home tie with Basildon went the same way, with the opposition conceding, although West do have a game, a rescheduled home tie with Fakenham in the Norfolk Junior Cup.
