London 3NE: Wymondham must start winning now
Wymondham go into their last two London 3NE matches of the season knowing that they must win tomorrow to be in with a realistic chance of avoiding the drop to the Eastern Counties League.
The first of the vital matches sees them play host to a Wanstead side buoyed by their win against table-toppers Holt last week. The final game of the season is away to promotion-chasing Stowmarket.
Wanstead are sitting in a comfortable mid-table position and will be able to play in a relaxed style with no pressure on them. In the reverse fixture in December, Wanstead ran out comfortable winners by 37-7.
Fortunately the Red and Blacks have players fit again following injury and a new-look front row sees Nigel Brown returning to prop with the ever-reliable Dane Canning moving across to hook alongside Lee Summers. Student Phil Johnson is available once more and partners Josh Wright in the second row with Turner, Blake and O'Sullivan completing the forward line up.
In the backs, Simo has recovered from injury and plays at centre alongside captain Pena Sokia with James Wyatt resuming at scrum-half and Dodd moving to full-back.
