But it was Walsham who scored first after 15 minutes to take a 7-0 lead.
Wisbech continued to take the game to the opposition but lost Blunt to the sin bin on 20 minutes, Walsham were unable to capitalise and the score remained 7-0 at half-time.
Wisbech made full use of the slight wind advantage in the second half but suffered at the hands of the referee as the industrious Greg Brownlow received a yellow card. Wisbech were rewarded for their hard work as Rudi Van de Merwe crossed for a try that was converted by Sam Anderson.
Again, Wisbech were reduced to 14 men as Van de Merwe received a 10 minute spell in the bin and Walsham slotted the resultant penalty to take the win.
