Beccles faced Diss 2's at home in a wet and windy encounter.

The first ten minutes saw Beccles assert some early dominance, forcing the opposition to concede a few penalties. Their stay in the opposition twenty-two, however, resulted in no points and a few minutes later Diss were able to play down field and grab a converted try. Beccles continued in positive fashion from the restart but ten minutes later a charged down chip and chase from halfway saw Diss scoop up and run in for their second converted try. With their tails up, Diss were able to start dictating play; running down the twelve/thirteen channel before slinging it to the wing which resulted in their third try on the cusp of half time. Diss 2's lead 21-0 at the break.
The away team were able to keep on the pressure they had built up during the first half. Working comfortably into Beccles territory, another try soon followed as Diss were able to go wide and touch it down. Beccles started to get more and more of the ball, stringing positive phases together in attack and in defence making big tackles, spearheaded by flanker Seb Morton who made more than his fair share. Beccles were able to work themselves into a good position and eventually going through the hands; Jake Loader was the resultant try scorer for the home side out on the wing. The rain was nonstop and the downpour continued. Diss kept it in close quarters and their forwards were able to march across the try line for their 5th of the day. Beccles got one last hurrah when they began to work the ball into Diss territory, helped by some strong running by centre Archie Wallis. They were able to go down the blind side where Loader managed to get his second of the day in similar fashion to the first. Man of the match was James Knights.
Final score 33-10 to Diss 2's. Beccles will feel again hard done by with back to back winnable matches resulting in losses. Next week Beccles 2's face Lowestoft 2's with Beccles 1's returning to action the following week when they face Southwold 2's at home on the 16th October.
