From kick off Wymondham exerted pressure and it wasn’t long before strong running, powerful drives and missed tackles saw Wymondham take a two-try lead.

With a determined response West played excellent rugby before scoring a well worked try by Tom Hitchcock, converted by Jack Trundley.

The rest of the first half was an even match with neither side dominating play.

In the second half West started strongly but mistakes allowed Wymondham to score two soft tries.
