Thetford got their new league season off to a good start with a win at Wisbech.
From the start it was end-to-end rugby played at a high tempo.
A penalty was awarded to the visitors and Will Martin comfortably slotted over for the first points.
However home pressure told and the eager defence was caught offside, allowing Wisbech drew level.
The next score was a piece of rugby magic. A quick tap penalty from Martin broke the defence and he popped the ball to Zak Pizzey before looping round him and diving acrobatically to touch down at the base of the corner flag.
