Fraser bounces back with man-of-the-match award

Wisbech Rugby Club’s scheduled match against Wanstead on Saturday was cancelled at short notice due to the opposition’s inability to field a full side.

Wisbech were awarded four points for the match and are now third from bottom and face the bottom club Mersea Island at home this Saturday.

A win against Mersea should put an end to Wisbech’s relegation fears after a 13-point deduction.

Wisbech 2nds were in action at the weekend and beat Norwich Union away by 22-15.

For the second week in a row, the seconds were at full strength and put in a great team performance to overcome a 15-0 deficit with tries from Tom Goose, Jake Smith and Ryan Tate with a brace. Ali Comben converted one of the tries for a well deserved win.

Wisbech Under 11s had two wins against Bourne on Sunday, once again showing their dominance over two matches.

In the first match Wisbech won 26-0. Fierce tackling by Lorrimor Thomas and Bradley Hutler held Bourne in their own half, while forwards Joe Kvedas and Henry Lankfer 2 dominated the mauls running in three tries. A third try came from Hutler with conversions by Jack Wicks, Isaac Haddon and Hutler.

The second encounter was more closely fought at 14-10. Although Bourne managed to run in two tries they failed to convert and began to feel the pressure. Wisbech took advantage of their strength and fitness, as Ethan English made some superb runs into space, offloading the ball at the point of contact to allow Wicks to score before running in one of his own. Conversions came from English and Sedgewick.

Wisbech Under 7s won one game and drew two against Bourne at home. They were on top form and played brilliantly with some fantastic team work. They had a 5-3 win, 6-6 draw, and 5-5 draw.

Wisbech tries were scored by Will Griffin 3, Joshua Bell 3, Oliver Murdoch 3, Jenson Nunn 4, Oliver Mann 2 and Billy Nurse. The youngest players for Wisbech are full of enthusiasm, and are already showing some great skills and passion for the increasingly popular game.
