Diss return to League action following the conclusion of the World Cup with a mouth- watering visit to Sudbury. Top of the table, Diss, with five straight wins, will certainly relish the opportunity of challenging second placed Sudbury away from home. Sudbury possess an exciting and elusive back division that will certainly challenge the Diss defensive structures. Almost certainly it will be in the forwards where the visitors will challenge the home side most. Following victory over Cantabrigians two weeks ago, Diss are able to field a full strength pack that has so far this season dominated possession from all first phased areas. The return of Charlie Crotty to the front row will add dynamism and ensure that technically the Diss eight should have an advantage. Captain, Fraser Hall also returns to his preferred position in the back –row

It is in the three-quarters where the majority of changes take place. The prolific half back combination of Jamie Burroughs and Jack Peacock return and will combine yet again with the growingly confident midfield of Will Scott and Josh Ludkin. Try scoring machine, Giles West also returns to add genuine pace to a back three that will test Sudbury to the limit. Over the next two weeks, Diss face tough encounters against Sudbury and the following week against third placed Norwich. The South Norfolk club now enter a defining period of the League season. Exciting times.
