Wisbech had three set of brothers playing: Josh and Sam Anderson, Ali and James Comben and Steven and Darren Priest.

After an early penalty by Sam Anderson, tries came from James Napier, Joe Barfoot three and Ben Chapman. MoM: James Comben.

“I hope we take this form into our next match against local rivals West Norfolk next Saturday.” said skipper Olly Mackett.

Bottom of the league Canvey Island called off Saturday’s game at Wisbech 1st XV, citing illness and injury.

Wisbech were awarded four league points, but fancied a try bonus point, club manager Cliff Humphreys adding: “It is particularly annoying as the teams we are chasing have already played Canvey and have secured extra points.”

Wisbech are away to Harlow on Saturday.
