Wisbech Wildcats warmed up for their new league campaign by taking part in a charity rugby tournament.
Head coach Leonard Veenendaal took his young squad to Robbie’s Rugby Festival; an event that raises funds for the Robbie Anderson Cancer Trusty and the Jake McCarthy Foundation.
Teams from around the country – including Nottingham Academy and Hinckley – went head-to-head and the strength of the opposition was clear to see as Wisbech went down 48-0 in their opening game against National League side Syston.
As the tournament went on the Wildcats’ performances improved, with James Napier, Freddy Foreman and Sam Anderson all scoring tries.
Leonard Veenendaal was impressed with his side’s display. He said: “It was a good test for some new players and was all for a good cause.
