Beeston trip faces L&Y

RUGBY: Lowestoft and Yarmouth travely to face Norwich at Beeston.

L&Y were let down last week by Campion who called off at 11.37am unable to raise a side. L&Y supporters and VP luncheon holders were lucky to have second-team action available for them to watch (see page 48).

This was the third fixture to be cancelled from an Essex side due to travel this season and five points is little consolation.

L&Y had 54 people sitting down for a luncheon and sponsors who had been looking forward to an afternoon of rugby, but they must look to this weekend where they face a Norwich side who have lost only once at home this season.

L&Y have the luxury of selecting from a full squad with the exception of Steve Powles, who serves the final week of his ban and will be available for selection next week.

The starting line-up shows a couple of changes to the side that were due to face Campion. Russell Wilkinson comes back into the engine room to partner Cashman.

The back row will consist of Steve Adams, Ryan Oakes and captain Marc Thomas at eight with Kristen Taylor-Crisp covering from the bench.
