Wisbech 7,

West Norfolk 33

Wisbech kicked off their pre-season against their local rivals on Saturday.

Early on Wisbech were able to counter attack via a series of efficient lineout and rucking play.

Despite consistent pressure from the Wisbech pack, Wests’ lineouts were working well and West scored two tries to gain a 14-0 half-time lead.

Wisbech fought back hard after the interval via some strong forward bursts around the flanks, and with West under pressure the hosts crashed through to close the gap at 14-7.

However, Wests scored three more times. The 2nds lost 22-12 to the same opponents.
