Wisbech’s first league meeting with Norwich Union since 2003 ended in jubilation for the Men in Red thanks to a supreme display. 

Centre James Napier crossed to open the scoring for Wisbech, before they extended their lead through Raimondas Vinksna and Harry Holmes on Saturday. 

Norwich did reply, but Isaia Baro finished a well-worked move for the hosts to secure a bonus point. 

Baro added to his tally after half-time while Isaac Tunikula, who scored twice, and Solomon Prestidge got on the scoresheet.
