Newman seals Wisbech Wildcats’ win
Cambridge County Junior Cup
Wisbech Wildcats 33 Sawston 20
A Jekyll and Hyde performance by Wildcats as they overcame previously unbeaten Sawston 1st in the first round in very breezy, overcast, conditions.
Wisbech scored their opening try when, from a lineout on five metres, Nathan Goodale crashed over. Shortly after Goodale scored his second try with Harry Newman adding the extra points. However Sawston responded with a try. Wisbech held a healthy half-time lead at 12-5.
Wisbech eased further into the lead when Newman hit the line at pace to touch down and he also added the conversion, 19–5. Sawston added a penalty as Wisbech started to lose their discipline and Sawston capitalised, scoring an unconverted try.
A converted James Bostock try eased matters but Sawston were awarded a penalty try.
However, in the final minutes Newman again showed his pace to score his second converted try.
