Defensive mistakes cost Wisbech Rugby Club’s first team dearly in 45-36 defeat
DEFENSIVE mistakes cost Wisbech Rugby Club’s first team dearly as they lost 45-36 against Campion on Saturday.
Tries from fly-half Will Pettit, Mark Laws and Joe Barfoot were enough to secure the team a try bonus point despite the defeat in Romford during a high-scoring affair.
The lead changed hands several times during a thrilling encounter that saw Campion open their account within a minute as both sides looked to attack at every opportunity.
Wisbech’s hard-working front row had an excellent afternoon and the visitors were ahead by a single point with less than ten minutes to play.
However, Campion’s sizeable pack added further scores to take the game from Wisbech’s reach.
