Diss II 48, Thetford 13
RUGBY: Thetford travelled to Diss for their first game of the season. They were met by a strong Diss II side and from the start their experience showed with several good forward drives.
Unperturbed, Thetford stood firm with debutant and Dexter's man-of-the-match Jason Lumbard showing that he is a young man for the future.
Diss scored their first try after 20 minutes with another strong drive from their forwards.
This was followed by another try shortly before half-time, making the score 17-3.
Diss introduced fresh legs for the second half and although Thetford tackled well they were unable to stop Diss scoring further tries as Thetford tired.
