Holt 17, Norwich Lions 15

Holt's original opponents Wisbech withdrew from the fixture on Thursday presenting them with the easiest two league points all season to consolidate their position of fourth in the table.

Norwich Lions agreed to travel to fill the gap and to help entertain a good crowd following a pre-match luncheon.

Both sides contributed to a well-committed and very close contest with Holt scoring the winning try right at the end. It had looked as though Norwich would take the spoils having taken the lead at 12-15, but Holt were equal to the occasion.
