Coach Steve Drawbridge called up reserves Pete Lankfer and Dave Salmon, both of whom acquitted themselves well. They were interspersed with James Corriete and Tom Paybody, making their debuts.

Tries were scored by Corriete, Will Pettit, Rudi Van de Merwe (2), James Comben, Andy Hoyles and James Napier. Pettit also kicked five conversions.

Man-of-the-match went to prop James Griffen, who was outstanding in the loose and the tight.

The victory set the Fenmen up nicely for tomorrow's trip to Stockwood Park, in the fifth round of the EDF Energy Junior Vase.
