Equally-matched sides Swaffham and Wisbech started off playing good rugby.

As the half progressed Wisbech scored a well-taken try from a five-metre scrum from the restart.

Wisbech then increased their lead with a solo effort by the scrum-half.

Swaffham didn't let their heads drop as the score was now 12-0 and with some good back play Swaffham's Scott Evans scored with a jinking run.

The half-time score was 12-5.

In the second half the Swaffham forwards took the game by the scruff of the neck with some excellent rucking play.

Ben Dawes, with some good runs from scrum-half, opened up the Wisbech defence and the backs took full advantage with Jamie Thompson running in two tries and Jake Bartholemew pouncing a try on the line to finish the match 20-12.

This registered 15 unanswered points in the second half to round off an excellent Swaffham team performance and gain a 20-12 victory.
