Junior Vase draw: Wisbech Rugby Club handed quarter-final trip to in-form London Exiles

WISBECH Rugby Club will face their sternest test so far in the quarter-finals of the Junior Vase after being drawn away to in-form London Exiles.

It will be the first time that Wisbech have been forced to play away from Harecroft Road in the competition, which has already seen them cruise past Old Brentwoods, Thetford and Billericay.

And Ben McCall’s side will need to produce their best rugby to see off the Exiles, who currently sit second in their Surrey Division One league.

Captain Shane Vickers said: “We know this will be our biggest test so far and that just makes us more pumped for it. All the lads are really excited and training hard.”

The crucial Vase clash will take place on February 11. A Wisbech win would put them within three matches of the final at Twickenham.

Wisbech, who sit second in Greene King Eastern Counties Division One, host Woodbridge in the league on Saturday.
