Wisbech Rugby Club’s juniors give fine showing during mixed weekend results at St Ives

WISBECH Rugby Club’s youngsters travelled to St Ives at the weekend and enjoyed mixed results despite playing some excellent rugby.

The under-10s were slow to get going in their first clash against St Ives A and lost 10-0. But tries from Thomas Nunn, Luke Green, Finlay Wilcox and Frank Etherington secured a 20-0 win over St Ives B in their second match.

Determined not to be turned over again the side raised their game in an excellent re-match with the home side’s A team and were unlucky to draw 5-5. A number of players gave fantastic performances but Archie Lyall was crowned player of the week.

The under-8s beat St Ives 8-7 in their first match with the unstoppable Ben Wilcox running in four tries. Jack Fowler scored a hat-trick in the side’s second win of the day, 7-5, while Sam Howat grabbed his second double of the afternoon in the third game - a 6-6 draw.

Oliver Mann ran in six tries and Jenson Nunn and Oliver Murdoch five each for the under-7s. Their three matches against St Ives ended in two defeats, 7-5 and 6-5, and one 7-7 draw.
