Fakenham travelled to Great Yarmouth-Broadland with five changes from the previous week but still made it eight wins out of eight.

The visitors scored early, with Jordi Walker cutting a strong line, taking a pass at speed and breaking through a number of tackles to score under the post, with Tom Bane-Young's conversion making it 7-0.

The hosts reduced the arrears with a penalty before a swift passing move saw Murray Tindall break the defensive line and score the second try of the game, converted by Bane-Young.

Walker then scored his second try, again converted, with some strong running before another home penalty made it 6-22 at the break.

The second half saw Fakenham have to soak up plenty of pressure but they defended well and completed the scoring when Tindall touched down on the right wing after an attack from deep. Joint Norfolk Brewhouse men-of-the match were Jack Powell-Thorne and Lee Mason.
