North Walsham Raiders wrapped up the first half of the season with a well-drilled performance.

They recorded a 33-0 win over Norwich Medics to clinch second place in Greene King EC One North before new fixtures are announced for the second series of games.

Two first-half tries, both converted by Ted Morgan, established a 14-9 first-half lead. After the break tries from prop Dane Canning, Tawand Kandemwa and George Masdin and two further conversions from Morgan sealed the win.

Unbeaten leaders Fakenham, who still have two games to play, went marching on with a 29-10 win at Diss Saracens while Norwich Union were 38-14 victors at Swaffham. Chris Spenceley, Jon Spicker, Tom Whipps, Ben Bond-Webster, David Sheldon-Smillie and Lloyd Davis got the tries while Davis added four conversions.
