After a week’s rest Wymondham’s 2nd XV return to action this weekend on a high with their victory over Norwich Lions in their last match. They now face what could be an even more important fixture of 2nd place Diss IIIs.
Current League standings Place Wymondham 2nd XV in 3rd place. Victory this weekend would put Wymondham Firmly into 2nd place hot on the heels of the top spot with a game in hand.
The squad is looking strong this week with Finbar Conway, Auden Airdrie and Anthony Wisheart returning to the side. The Pack is bolstered by Connor Airdrie stepping back to his preferred position of Hooker and the Back Line is as dangerous as last week with it remaining unchanged.
The game itself promises to be a hard fought grudge match with Wymondham wanting to retain their record of being undefeated at home this season and securing 2nd place and Diss IIIs coming off the back of an away loss to the UEA will want to prove they are still in the battle for promotion and top of the league.
Coach Richard Davis said “We are looking forward to starting Saturday’s game how we finished our last, continuing with a strong team performance”
With Captain Ollie Wright adding “In our last game, we learnt that all the talent in the world won’t take you anywhere without your teammates. This week, the Two’s positive attitude and attacking strength as a team will rub salt in the wounds of a strong Diss side. To our supporters – this is not a game to miss!””
A home crowd should help the 2nd XV on their journey to the top of the league and any support would be welcomed. With a sunny and mild Saturday predicted by the weather man, I can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday afternoon! #UpTheTwos!
