WISBECH Rugby Club will play away at either Harbury or Redditch if they make the quarter-finals of the national EDF Energy Junior Vase.

Wisbech head coach Steve Drawbridge said: "Both teams play in the South Midlands League, and I know that Harbury beat Redditch earlier this season.

"I understand that they play at the same level as Stockwood Park, who we beat two rounds ago, and I will do my best to find out as much about them both as I can."

Wisbech were due to play fellow Eastern Counties Division One title chasers Lowestoft and Yarmouth tomorrow, but the match was postponed for a second time on Tuesday because snow and ice have made the pitch unplayable.

It was hoped that a hastily-arranged league match against Stowmarket could be arranged instead if conditions improved but Thursday's heavy snow ensured that no rugby will be played in Fenland this weekend.
