HONOURS were shared in Saturday's friendly match between the Wisbech and March Rugby Clubs' second teams.
As expected, the Fenland derby proved to be hugely competitive and tempers often flared but in the end both teams had to be content with the 7-7 final score.
Hard hits came in from both defences, who stood firm and thwarted the majority of attacks.
However, it was March who drew first blood when the Bears' pack produced quick ball to the backs and Simon Altoff crossed the line to score his first try for the club. Matt Day's conversion gave March a 7-0 lead at the break.
It was more of the same in the second half and Wisbech looked like they may regret missing penalty kicks but with time running out, the home side produced one final surge from their forwards and scored a converted try.
