Wisbech Grammar School produced an outstanding display on Saturday to get their season up and running.
They beat King’s Ely 33-12 in their first home game of the season, running in five tries.
After soaking up some King’s Ely pressure in the opening phases Wisbech Grammar burst into action on the counter attack, with Jack Trundley eventually finishing off a move that started in their own 22m area.
Wisbech Grammar maintained the momentum from the resulting kick off, working their way back into the Ely half and taking another five points from their next entry into the Ely 22m area, as a double miss pass put winger Jack Robb over for his first try of the season.
Having played against the conditions in the first half a 12-0 lead was an impressive turnaround. In the second half Wisbech Grammar looked to use the conditions in their favour, and with a slight change in game plan they continued to stretch the lead.
Two tries in quick succession put the game to bed as George Lemon made a clean line break within seconds of coming on, which he finished himself, before moments later he did exactly the same, with George Dady this time finishing off the try as Lemon was brought down just before the try line – giving Wisbech Grammar a 26-0 lead.
As the conditions worsened more mistakes started to creep in for both sides. Two late tries for Ely through their impressive Fly-Half gave them 12 points, but Wisbech Grammar wrapped up the game as George Lemon completed his impressive second half display with another try. Five tries with four conversions for Jack Trundley saw Wisbech Grammar win 33-12 and make it another home victory.
