PUBLISHED: 15:00 20 September 2019 Jacob Ranson Barking manager Justin Gardner knows they must stop FC Romania playing their free flowing football this weekend. The Blues will travel away to Theobalds Lane on Saturday to take on Ionut Vintila's side in a Isthmian League South Central clash with both sides looking to start climbing up the league table. Former Billericay Town boss Gardner knows it will be a tough test but also a bit of an unknown as they pick up very mixed results."It's a team that you never know what sort of team is going to show up. They can go beat the top of the league or they can go and get trounced," Gardner said. "We played them in pre-season a couple of years ago and they're a very good footballing team."If you let them play they'll kill you really."Barking were also due to host Waltham Abbey at Mayesbrook Park last night (Tuesday) in their first home match in the league this season.

Coach Eddie Jones has reverted almost entirely to the XV that sent Ireland spinning to a record defeat at Twickenham last month, with only Joe Cokanasiga and George Kruis missing.The midfield that engineered a 57-15 victory that day is back with George Ford picked at fly-half and playing inside a centre duo of captain Owen Farrell and Manu Tuilagi.Cokanasiga has been struggling with a knee injury and despite being passed fit by the England management, is unable to even win a place on the bench.Instead, Anthony Watson has been given the chance to continue his strong form of the warm-up Tests by starting on the right wing, with Jonny May and Elliot Daly completing the back three.Providing … [Read more...] about Rugby World Cup: Strongest England side to face Tonga
