Ewan eases to hat-trick

Wisbech RFC Under 9s’ fixture against Ely on Sunday saw them continue their good run of form, winning two matches and drawing two.

The home team’s new centre pairing of Luke Hare and Jack Fowler was particularly effective,

All three of Wisbech’s tries in the second match came from in-form scrum half Ewan Samways with the last, a length of the field break, coming in the very last play.
