Wisbech welcomed St Ives, and came away with two wins and a draw with scores 5-0, 3-3 and 3-2.

Tries: George Kerr (3), Will Easton (2), William Paul (2), Samuel Dickerson (2) and Billy Nurse, plus a penalty try awarded.


In a series of quick-fire 20 minute matches at Bury St Edmunds, Fenland Barbarians (Wisbech and Spalding) grew stronger.

In the first match Bury won convincingly 17-0. In the second the Barbarians drew 5-5 with David Betts capitalising on a great surge from Theo Hoyles-Simpson to run in a try.

In the third the Barbarians dominated and were far better than their 7-5 win portrayed with exceptional tackling from Elliot Scott and brave return running from Tommy Sawyer. Betts’ try was converted at distance by Ben Foracre. Bury won the fourth contest 5-0.

Notable performances by newcomer Harry Smith, Archie Lyall, and Cameron Finlay at centre.

Head coach Alex Wilcox said: “ The lads kept their heads up at all times despite a bad start.”
