Saracens lead way
Three tries in both halves against Woodbridge II saw Diss Saracens continue their domination of the Suffolk Merit Table. Woodbridge showed that they are an improved side compared to the disorganised group of players they travelled with earlier in the season.
Three tries in both halves against Woodbridge II saw Diss Saracens continue their domination of the Suffolk Merit Table.
Woodbridge showed that they are an improved side compared to the disorganised group of players they travelled with earlier in the season.
However, within the opening couple of minutes Diss had scored through the aging Will Foote after quick ball had been well used by the speedy backline.
Woodbridge stepped up their game and made life difficult for the Saracens with their committed work at the breakdown. It was always a case of how, not if, Diss would continue their scoring.

The backs, well marshalled by Max Horslen, made the hosts' backs work hard in defence and provided a good target for the back row. Harry Foster-Wright benefited from such play and finished well with speed and power wide on the right.
Dan Witting also touched down after a fluid move involving all of the three-quarters.

The second half was largely a scrappy affair. Diss still dominated both territory and possession though lacked the continuity to break down the defending Woodbridge side.
Foote scored his second of the afternoon on the back of strong driving play from the forwards, particularly Smith and Passmore.
Max Horslen then got his name on the scoresheet by handing off slack defence, after latching onto a pass from John Llewellyn. Witting capped off his return to the team by scoring his second and the Saracens' final try of the game for a 36-0 game.
Next week Diss will need to recapture some earlier season form as they host North Walsham in the semi-final of the Eastern Counties second team cup.
