Norwich bid to prove they've turned corner

Despite the obvious disappointment amongst players, coaches and spectators at Beeston Hyrne after the one point loss to Sudbury there was a sense that Norwich's season may be on the turn.

Despite the obvious disappointment amongst players, coaches and spectators at Beeston Hyrne after the one point loss to Sudbury there was a sense that Norwich's season may be on the turn.

The hosts were the better side and if they had been a little more clinical in the first 10 minutes would have beaten a side who are currently second in the league.

This sense of progress has been evident in the hard work seen on the training pitch this week and the feeling that tomorrow's home game against Harlow is crucial to maintain the momentum.

When the two teams met earlier in the season Norwich won a tight game 11-7. The two clubs know each other well, having been in the same league for many years. The personnel have changed over the years but each game is always strongly contested.

Harlow currently lie three places above Norwich and defeated Chelmsford last week, so will be in a confident mood. The forward battle is always crucial in these ties and the Norwich front row of Aaron Swanbrough, John Snowling and Joe Riches will be relishing the challenge after winning the tight battle against Sudbury.

The backs looked dangerous in phases last week and Josh Ives is relishing his important link role at scrum-half, teaming up well with Andy Campbell at fly-half. In the centres Scott Hancock showed what a devastating turn of pace he has got in breaking the Sudbury line on a number of occasions.
