Wymondham concentrating on the league

LONDON 3NE: Wymondham return to league action tomorrow with a home match against Suffolk rivals Sudbury.

For the second match in succession, the Red and Blacks are playing the team immediately above them in the table and, with the difference at only one point, a win would see Wymondham overtake Sudbury and move into a more comfortable mid-table position.

The coaches will be hoping that the team will put last week's Vase defeat behind them and, instead, build on their last league game which saw them win comfortably against Upminster.

The selectors have been able to choose a strong looking pack with Mark White, David Blake and Andy Duckham returning to duty after resting last week. UEA dtudent Phil Johnson, who made his debut against Finchley, retains his place in the back row. In the backs, James Wyatt comes in at scrum-half after his try scoring appearance in the Vase while the established centre pairing of Pena Sokia and Barry O'Sullivan are welcomed back.

• After a highly promising cup game last week, when several squad players got the chance to show their form, the starting line-up for Norwich's home game against Campion has a more familiar look.

The unavailability of the ever reliable Jonny O'Brien at full-back has caused a shuffle in the backs with captain Jonny Wheater moving to his preferred position. Rob Micklethwaite starts at fly-half and after a fine game last week Dan Coltman moves to outside centre.

In the pack Tom Whiskin retains his position at hooker in the continued absence of Snowling and Williams returns at tight head in place of the injured Swanborough.

The backrow sees the return of Dave Micklethwaite, rested last week, who has been the stand-out player so far. Adnitt returns to his more normal position of eight and Craig Dunbar at six.

• Holt return to action with a home match against Harlow tomorrow after conceding last week's scheduled Vase tie due to injury problems. The Owls have started the season superbly, winning all five league games so far to lead the division, but they face a big test against a side who can also boast a 100pc record.
