Wisbech 1st 7pts, Wymondham 13pts

WISBECH let victory slip through their grasp at home on Saturday and the relegation threat remains with just four games left in the season.

The home side led for the majority of the game but Wymondham scored a late converted try to take the victory.

This result leaves the club third from bottom of the table and three points adrift of next placed side Campion.

Wisbech will have to focus on collecting as many points as possible from their final games starting with Newmarket away this Saturday.

Wymondham took the lead with two penalties in a pretty uneventful first half.

Then just before the half-time whistle, skipper Tom Long made a break to bring the first try of the game and Mark Laws, who had missed an early penalty, converted to give Wisbech a 7-6 lead at the break.

Laws should have increased the lead after the break but failed to find the target with two penalties but it still seemed as though Wisbech would hold as the clock wound down.

But with four minutes left Wymondham, who had been gaining in momentum, scored a converted try to win 13-7.

Skipper Long said: “It was pretty disappointing to lose like that but the consolation was that we picked up a bonus point.

“We will go to Newmarket on Saturday in a positive mood and hope we can raise our game to beat them.”
