With great handling rugby, after a ruck Olly Spurrier sniped through the home defence to score under the posts. Conversion was made by Jack Trundley.

More impressive play from the forwards ensued with Dawson Hunter punching through the Walsham defence to score.

The squad positions were rotated to give all players game time. Half time score: 0-17.

West continued from where they left the first half with great intensity.

Patience was the key here with solid aggressive defence from the whole team stopping all potential breaks.
