Wymondham ran in eight tries to record their sixth win in eight games and keep the pressure on leaders Holt.

In the second game to be played at the club's new Barnard Fields ground the Red and Blacks produced a strong performance, with the forwards completely dominating the scrum.

Big breaks were made by Tom Baxter, David Blake, Ethan Holmwood and Josh Wright while the defence from the backs was also impressive.

The team made good decisions in penalty kicking and attack and were far too strong for a Fakenham side who were on the back foot for the vast majority of the game.

Tom Midgeley scored three tries for Wymondham while Holmwood, Luke Beales, Josh Cousens, Wright and Blake also touched down as they consolidated second position in the table.
