Streatham-Croydon head coach Jeff Greenleaf says they have been handed the toughest RFU Junior Vase draw in the country.
Greenleaf’s men, without a game last weekend and fifth in Surrey Division Two, have been drawn away at Surrey One leaders Farnham in the third round on December 8.
Farnham are unbeaten in six league outings and have only conceded 52 points in four home games.
Greenleaf said: “We are only four games from Twickenham and this is probably the hardest draw left in the country.
“Farnham haven’t lost a game in Surrey One, so we’ve no illusions that this is going to be anything other than very tough. But we believe we can do it if we approach the game with the right attitude.”
This weekend, Streatham-Croydon return to league action with the visit of Law Society on Saturday (kick off 2.30pm). Greenleaf is boosted by the return of Aaron Brown from injury.
