Crusaders II 36
Fakenham II 51
Fakenham second team played their first game since the decision was made to eject them from EC3 North.
The majority of the players involved for Fakenham had not played for six weeks, or in some cases more, but this was an important friendly to help reunite the players in preparation for the start of their EC4 Merit table games which are due to start on February 2.
It was a high-scoring open game of rugby with the spectators being treated to some excellent tries and attacking play.
The game was played in good spirit and gave both teams a much-needed workout to prepare for future competitive fixtures in the coming weeks.
The visitors enjoyed periods of dominance with the players linking well and debutant Jack Wells throwing himself into the action whilst making his fair share of tackles and ball carrying drives.
The team management group of Toby Kent, Brandon Fairbrother and Matthew Harding were pleased with the spirited performance of the team with all players being involved in many of the tries that Fakenham scored.
Tries came from Ashley Stewart, Chris Whitby-Dack, Charlie Harding (x 2) and Jack Whitsides, who also kicked three conversions. Fakenham seconds are next in action on Saturday, February 2, when the play Broadland seconds in an EC4 Merit table game.
Tomorrow sees Fakenham’s first team travel to Thetford for a mid-table clash in their London EC3 season.
Kick-off is 2pm, with spectators welcome.
