Man-of-the-match: Adam Bunton for his outstanding work rate in defence.

Head coach Leonard Veenendaal said: “Solomon Prestidge and Kerrie McMullen were the pick of the forwards and I was very pleased with young Vytautas Mudingis on his debut at loose head prop. Dan Roberts was a rock in defence. We will continue to work on cutting out the errors as we aim to finish the league in the top three.”

Wisbech have a bye this weekend, while the Wildcats are at home to high-flying Shelford 4th XV. Wisbech are next in league action on January 23 at Ipswich YM.
