Youngster Wyatt takes centre stage

WYMONDHAM 22, CAMPION 10: Just over two months since their previous win in Division 3NE, Wymondham recorded only their second victory of the season. They made heavy going of it but in the end the margin was comfortable.

Wymondham got on the scoresheet in the 10th minute when Alex Brugger, relishing in his new role as fullback, sprinted through to touch down and James Wyatt had a simple conversion chance.

The score was a wake-up call for Campion and when a clearance attempt by Wymondham failed to find touch the visitors capitalised, scoring a try that went unconverted.

After the break Wyatt stretched the lead with a penalty but then Campion brought scores level with their second try.

It needed some luck and a spot of brilliance from someone to light up the game and teenager Wyatt was the lad to do it. Straight from Norfolk's Ben Youngs training manual, a cheeky chip over the top fooled the Campion full-back together with the chasing Pena Sokia but the wicked bounce proved a gem for Wyatt who went over for a lucky try.

Then Wyatt dazzled Campion, scoring a terrific solo try from the half way. A quick tapped penalty caught Campion napping and the fleet footed scrumhalf stepped through the defence and rounded the full-back, his conversion moving his day's tally up to 14.
