1st XV Match Report

Wisbech Grammar School produced an outstanding performance to run in six tries as they defeated Wymondham College for the second time this season. 

It was Wymondham who started the quickest, but some solid defence from the team in gold kept their strong ball carriers at bay. It took a moment of magic to ignite the spark in the Wisbech Grammar attacking game, with some great interplay between forwards and backs taking them from their own line to just outside the Wymondham 22, where they won a penalty. Their ambition showed as they kicked to the corner and Henry Hoyles scored his first try of the season from a catch and drive. Bradley Hutler added a second try soon after following some excellent continuity and good offloads from the back line. A break from Cameron Mauramooto set the platform for a third try, this time from Will Gowler - who was excellent in defence and attack all day - with Oliver Mann adding a fourth before the break. Alongside the tries, three conversions from Oliver Mann put the halftime score at 26-0. 

In the second half, Wymondham pinned Wisbech Grammar in their own half. Some stoic defence for almost 30 minutes kept the opposition out, with Kaman Baxter, Henry Hoyles and George Dady making some big and important defensive tackles. This defence, coupled with two scores from their own try line after soaking up the pressure, made this an even more impressive all-round performance. The first of the two tries came from Bradley Hutler as the ball was moved between the two wide channels at speed, and the second came in the last play of the game with a break from the ever impressive Frazer Brown at flyhalf, who offloaded out of the tackle to Will Gowler who had worked in-field from the blindside wing, who in turn fed captain Oliver Mann who went 70 meters to finish off one of the teams best tries of the season. 

A full-time score of 40-0 was much deserved, with a performance that the boys were rightly proud of.
