Tries galore at Cottons Park

Campion and Wisbech combined to score 12 tries as defences were put to the sword at Cottons Park.

Their last meeting had been in a promotion play-off, 18 months earlier, which Wisbech won, but Campion got their own back in this London Three North East encounter, winning 45-36.

Dave Armstrong made a break and fed the ball to captain Luke Maguire for an easy run into the corner for the first of his three tries.

Wisbech replied with a penalty, before a chip kick by fly-half Paul Larner was collected by Armstrong, who went over, before limping off with a leg injury.

Returning scrum-half Phil Friel converted, but Wisbech hit back with three converted tries to move 24-12 up.

Campion rallied, with Kyle Brazier touching down the first of three tries as they moved five points up early in the second half.

Another breakaway got Wisbech back on terms but good work from Luke Andrew and James Dupree helped earn two penalties, which Friel slotted to make it 35-29.

Wisbech claimed their fifth try, which was converted, to move one point up, but Kev O’Reilly powered his way over to get Campion back in front.

And turnover in the visiting 22 eventually led to prop Matt Dwyer bulldozing his way over to complete a topsy-turvy encounter.
