This Norfolk merit table division 3 game was played in a mixture of snow and driving wind on a bitterly cold day, making all elements of the game extremely difficult. The forwards had a very competitive battle with both sides enjoying periods of control at scrums, ruck and mauls. Fakenham, however, had the younger players and a full set of young fit backs and this is where the main difference between the teams proved to be.
Fakenham's first three tries came from the quicker backs opening up channels and allowing other players to score with Lingwood, Clay and Richardson all taking their opportunities (0-15). Richardson was controlling the Fakenham backs well with some deft passing and dummies to set them intoattacking
