Fakenham Rugby Club made a mixed start to this season's league campaign.

A depleted first team went down 17-28 to a strong Wisbech side after making a great start, going 17-0 up in the first half. Winger Mark Allen scored two fine tries which were converted by Stuart Baldock, who also contributed with a penalty.

But Fakenham lost Josh Speeny to a serious ankle injury. Then the superior strength of Wisbech took control and they ended up winning by 11 points.

This week first away to Stowmarket (league match).
