Wisbech Rugby Club’s disappointing start to the season continued with a 28-0 loss to Ely at Harecroft Road on Saturday.

They have lost both their games so far in the Greene King IPA Easten Counties League.

Head coach Leonard Veenendaal said: “It was a disappointing team performance. Our inability to control the breakdown and individual errors cost us.

“We clearly missed Solomon Prestidge’s leadership on the pitch. The key isn’t to tear up the tactics, but to stay composed and the players have to realise they have to play smarter or they will fall foul of the referee every week.”

Wisbech will look to bounce back when they travel to Southwold on Saturday.

Wisbech Wildcats were forced to play the entire game with 14 men at Broadlands.

Due to several players being injured and a low player turnout this year, the team could only field 11 players.
