Ahead throughout the game, North Walsham Raiders were pushed all the way by a strong Great Yarmouth-Broadland side, hanging on through five minutes of added time.

Raiders were shocked when the referee announced the visitors had won but after checking his scorecard he announced that the home side had come out on top 44-41,

The Raiders' tries came from Ted Morgan (3), Freddie Henley-Hunter, Harry Dye and Will Quinn, with Morgan adding two conversions.

Norwich Union put the previous week's sloppy display to bed as a commanding performance saw them run out comprehensive 30-14 winners over visitors Diss Saracens.

Craig Dunbar powered over to open the scoring before a good finish from Callum Slaughter and further tries from Jon Spicker and Ben Bond-Webster made it 20-7 at the break.
