Rugby: Crucial test for Stowmarket

Stowmarket RUFC face a tough test of their 100 per cent home record tomorrow when Cantabrigian are the visitors to Chilton Fields, 2.15pm.
Stow have won all eight of their home Greene King IPA Eastern Counties One games so far this season but have since 'lost' two of those due to the withdrawals of Fakenham and Haverhill.
The Suffolk club's results are still to be expunged from the league table but, when they are, it will see third-placed Cantabrigian overtake both Stow and present leaders West Norfolk into top spot.
Cantabrigian have played Haverhill only once this season and will lose five points, compared to the ten being taken from their title rivals Stowmarket and nine from West Norfolk.
It makes it all the more important that Stow bounce back from last week's 21-0 defeat at West Norfolk and repeat their success over Cantabrigian in the reverse fixture when they returned from Cambridge with a 21-20 success.
