We want to hear about the biggest wins, or defeats, which you have seen when watching a sports team in Norfolk, Suffolk or Cambridgeshire.

Did you once play for a football team which conceded a cricket score, or a cricket team which could only match a score similar to a football match?

The huge victory of Royal Kituro, in the top tier of Belgium's rugby union leagues, has become an internet sensation in recent days.

Kituro thumped Soignies 356-3 after the referee failed to turn up.

Many of the visiting players of Soignies then drifted home presuming the game would not be played – only for the referee to turn up an hour late.

The 16 players remaining for the visiting side then failed to compete in the match in an apparent protest, allowing Kituro to run in an average of more than four points a minute on average.

Footage of the match can be viewed above, but now we are looking for the biggest results recorded locally.
