Diss RFC play the most important game in their history on Saturday.

They take on Letchworth Garden City at Mackenders and a win would sees them promoted as Champions of London League 2 North.

They would then play at a higher level in the 2009/10 season than ever achieved by a previous Diss team.

A squad of 19 has been named, with final selection depending on late fitness tests to certain key players.

The coaching staff will be preparing their squad mindful of the away game at Letchworth, when they became one of only two sides to beat Diss in the league this season.

On that murky raw day in Novenber, Diss lost by just one point because they allowed the Letchworth pack to dominate in the early stages, and conceded far too many needless penalties.

The visitors may look as if they have nothing to play for, being in a comfortable mid-table league position, but it can be taken for granted that they would like to finish their season on a high - with a league double over Diss being the main motivation.

A large crowd is expected on Saturday at Mackenders for a 3pm kick-off. Spectators are advised to arrive early in order to be in position for the start of the game.

After retaining the Harrison Cup against Holt, Diss Saracens travel to Thetford taking a strong squad to play for the Tail End Cup.

There are no third or fourth- team fixtures this week.

On Sunday the Colts, U17s, U15s, U14s, and U13s are training at home. The U13s compete at Mackenders in the Diss RFC Hammonds Land Rover Festival.

The U16s are at Bury St Edmunds and the Minis are at Norwich in their festival.
