EASTERN COUNTIES ONE: Wisbech coach McCall wants another win and bonus point to keep pressure on Cantabs

Coach Ben McCall has urged his Wisbech Rugby Club side to win with a bonus point again this weekend if they want to keep their title hopes alive.

McCall's charges - second in Greene King Eastern Counties Division One - ran in five tries during a 34-5 win over Southwold on Saturday to grab a vital five points to keep the pressure up on Cantabrigian.

With his side hosting struggling Mersea Island at Harecroft Road - where Wisbech have a 100pc record in the league this season - McCall is looking for a similar outcome tomorrow.

'We're looking for the same as last weekend. There's still things to work on but we need to win and pick up the bonus point to keep ourselves in with a shout of winning the title,' said McCall.

'More importantly we need to keep hold of second place but also send out a message that we still mean business. Cantabs have to get their points on the board and they know we are in the running.

'Their coach, Steve Drawbridge, is a former Wisbech coach so he won't be taking us for granted. We just have to concentrate on what we do and not worry about them until we check their result at around 5.30pm.'

The Harecroft Road outfit have no injury doubts going into the game and Dave Lamacraft may return to their squad.
