Relegation looming as Diss travel to leaders Eton Manor

Relegation could be all but confirmed for Diss in London One North tomorrow, as they travel to league leaders Eton Manor.

The fixture list has not been kind to Diss, who last week had to travel to Essex to face second-placed Westcliff and found themselves on the wrong end of a 105-5 scoreline after having to field a depleted side.

It is north London this weekend for Diss, to face an Eton Manor side who are having to work hard to keep Westcliff at arm's length in the title race.

They have won seven successive matches since losing 27-11 at North Walsham in January and have the meanest defence in London 1N, having conceded just 248 points in 23 matches, which is 69 points better than any other team in the division.

Four teams have scored significantly more points than them though, so there is at least some faint hope for Diss, who have won just once in their last nine.

- Diss II will be the focus at Mackenders tomorrow, when they take on Holt II in the Woodfordes Norfolk Plate final (3pm).

The Saracens go into the final with high hopes as they have won their last 16 matches in a row and have already won the Woodfordes Norfolk Division One title.
