Norwich celebrate the annual Harvey Back to Norwich Day tomorrow in honour of the late Alan Harvey (Ziggy), one of the club’s most popular presidents.
In his day he was also a formidable second row forward. As many as 50 past players will be in attendance at lunch before the game against Newmarket with several turning out for an old lags XV in the morning against the club’s A team.
For the Newmarket game coach Simon Hill has kept faith with the side that performed so well in the second half against Stowmarket last week.
Tom Whiskin will start in the front row in place of the injured Tom Williams while Jon Coltman slots into the back row with Matt Cartwright, Jordy Walker and Dan Horslen on the bench. The Lions are away to Beccles II.
Norwich will be looking to consolidate their fourth position in London 3NE with just one match to be played after tomorrow.
At the top of the table champions Holt will be aiming to put one over their nearest challengers Stowmarket at High Kelling.
The Owls, who will also be keen to show that last week’s surprise defeat at Wanstead was no more than a temporary aberration, are protecting a proud unbeaten home run stretching back 18 months.
