Wanstead 50pts,

Wisbech 26pts

Coach Leonard Veenendaal has called for players to commit and to want to wear the club shirt with pride.

His comments came after a difficult week when a number of regular first team squad members were not available for the trip to Wanstead in North London.

On Thursday night Wisbech were forced to cancel the second team game and drafted a number of Seconds into the first team squad. Thanks must go to second team skipper Olly Mackett.

The effort, heart and commitment of the 16-man squad who did travel to Wanstead was phenomenal and was rewarded with a bonus point for four tries.

Wisbech were only able to set a game plan 30 minutes before kick off and as a result found themselves 38-0 down inside 25 minutes as the home team rattled in six tries.

Wisbech’s cause was not helped when full back Joe Barfoot was carded somewhat harshly for not rolling away in the tackle.

Jack Malkin and Josh Anderson scored tries both of which were converted by Sam Anderson.

Down 38-14 at half time, Barfoot burst through with a blistering run to score a converted try and Malkin scored his second try.

Man of the match was Olly Mackett; and a special mention to Robbie Brook, who is at university in West London and answered the call to arms at short notice.

Wisbech entertain Upminster on Saturday, kick off 3pm. Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
