In a rain-drenched encounter at 1st XV level the forwards locked horns in a tough battle at the front and the Wisbech side took an early lead before finding itself trailing 27-24 with only 15 minutes left to play.

However, the Grammar School boys came back strongly to secure a 41-27 win, with tries from Ryan Hutler (3), Freddy Foreman (2), Willis Bennett and Aiden Burt and captain Patrick Webb kicking three conversions.

In other matches against King’s Ely, the 2nd XV lost 17-7 at home, and there were away wins for the under 15 side (28-14) and the U14s (46-5).

Head of rugby Mr Alex Laybourne said: “I am delighted with the successful weekend at the senior end of the school. The pupils are developing week on week and showed some well rounded performances in difficult conditions.

“I am looking forward to using this momentum going into next week’s fixtures against Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School in London.”
