Worrying injury blow for Turner

After last weekend's eventful trip to Canvey Island, which ended in a 34-13 defeat, things don't get any easier for Wymondham in London 3NE as they travel to Gunton Park to face Lowestoft & Yarmouth.

After last weekend's eventful trip to Canvey Island, which ended in a 34-13 defeat, things don't get any easier for Wymondham in London 3NE as they travel to Gunton Park to face Lowestoft & Yarmouth.

Their hosts have a formidable home record, losing just once in two and a half seasons, and have a nice mix of youth and experience, with at least four of the squad experienced at National League level.

Wymondham will be without the services of Alan Turner, pictured, who suffered a career threatening neck injury last Saturday at Canvey Island.

They hope to be able to call upon the multi-talented Stewart Forton to slot straight in at hooker if he can recover from an eye injury, also sustained last weekend. Jim Kelly will then take over the loose-head prop position.
