NORFOLK MERIT LEAGUE DIVISION TWO

Wisbech 2nd XV 32

Norwich Union 10

FORMER Wisbech skipper Ricky Harnwell scored his first try in more than six years to seal a fine win that keeps them at the top of the table.

First-half tries from Raimus, Tim Mason and Ben Rogers did the damage as Wisbech took control.

Mark Laws got the scoring underway with a penalty and also converted one of the tries.

Norwich Union fielded a strong pack and scored two unconverted tries for a half-time score of 20-10 to Wisbech.

Wisbech stepped up a gear in the second half and with captain Andy Heighton in fine form, two more tries were scored.

James Napier crossed the line and Laws added the conversion.

Harnwell's try completed the scoring and it will be seen as a fine reward for an unsung stalwart of the club.
