Fakenham 21, Wymondham 10- (match abandoned).
Wymondham kicked off into the wind and very soon it became clear that this was a more committed performance than in recent weeks. They were put under early pressure but the defence, unlike the last few weeks, held out. The rucks were well contested and again, Wymondham more than held their own, driving Fakenham off the ball a number of times.
There followed a concerted period of pressure from Fakenham and eventually, they were rewarded with a try, which they converted to take the early lead. Wymondham fought their way back into the game and had the better of the remainder of the half, despite being penalised heavily at the breakdown. They held their composure and struck back with a try which would compete with any try of the season. The forwards won quick ball which was shipped out to the backs. Then followed interplay between Harry and Greg in the centre which bewildered the Fakenham defence and Harry sauntered over to touchdown.
Fakenham countered by again putting pressure on the Wymondham line but again Wymondham held out. As Fakenham moved the ball out to the backs a superb piece of vision led to Harry intercepting a pass and running a full 80m to score, taking Wymondham to a half time lead of 10-7.
Early in the second half Wymondham seemed to relax a little and two lapses of concentration, coupled with more penalties at the breakdown lead to two converted tries, retaking the lead.
Wymondham however, again fought their way back into the game and started to win ball and ground again. Unfortunately, at this stage, Liam suffered a potentially serious neck injury and the match had to be abandoned with approx.. 8 mins remaining.
All in all a much improved performance from Wymondham in a well fought and even game with both sides demonstrating a high level of skill and commitment.
MVP was Will Gaines for his work in the loose and at the breakdown.
