The Wisbech U9s/U10s squad, playing as Tigers and Wildcats, travelled for matches against their counterparts from Peterborough RFC & St Neots RFC.

The Wisbech players worked hard to attack as a team looking for passes to avoid tags and touches. All showed a real determination to go forward with the ball and there was lots of elusive running. The work rate did not drop in defence with both the Tigers and Wildcats showing great team spirit by chasing hard to collect tags and make touches.

The young players also showed excellent behaviour and respect in observing the two minute silence to mark Remembrance Sunday.
