Nelson gives trio a chance to impress

LONDON 3NE: Lowestoft and Yarmouth travel to South Woodham Ferrers tomorrow in search of a third away win this season.

Director of Rugby Scott Nelson has decided to make no changes to the squad that beat Bancroft 50-16 two weeks ago.

There are three changes to the starting line-up with Graeme Newton getting a start ahead of Richard Bristo in the front row, Jan Scheidje starting in the back row in place of Steve Powles who moves to the bench and Daniel Boardley gets his first start this season at full-back with Brad Sutherland also benching.

Nelson said: 'It's great to have the headache of selection and all the players now know they will have to fight for positions, Steve, Brad and Richard have been playing well but Graeme, Jan and Boarders have impressed enough at training to justify a start.'

• After a week's break from league action Wymondham return to the fray this weekend with their second consecutive trip to North London to face newly-promoted Bancroft, who sit at the foot of the table.

However, Wymondham have fared only slightly better, winning just once and with only two points separating the two teams this could be a lively encounter.

The two clubs have met before in league action, back in March 1999 in London Three NE, as it was then, where Wymondham recorded a creditable 31-5 victory away at Buckhurst Lane.
