Southwold maintained their promotion push by taking all five points from their trip to Wymondham.

The hosts barely touched the ball before they conceded the first try on 14 minutes.

It came after a drive from a lineout, with Callum Anthony breaking the defensive line before offloading to skipper James Hall who sprinted home, with Josh Wallis converting.

Chippy Middleditch then broke from the back of the ruck but was well tackled and the ball popped loose. It was gathered by the Wymondham forwards and delivered to left winger Chris Collins-Reed who ran at great pace down the line before touching down under the posts. It was a great individual try and with Charlie Delaney’s conversion successful it levelled up the score at 7-7.

This inspired Wymondham, who had a good spell of possession and kicked intelligently for territory, but the Wold defence stood strong.

On the half hour Wold won good ball from a scrum and Anthony popped a beautiful kick over the Wymondham line. James Barton caught it on the full just in his own half and sprinted clear to score under the posts, with Wallis converting.

Wold then had another spell of domination but it took almost until half-time and another touch of brilliance from Anthony for them to add to their score. Another great kick saw Ollie Carlstrom catch the ball and he sprinted 20 metres before offloading back to Anthony who sprinted in under the posts. Wallis again obliged with the conversion.

The second half was more of a dire affair with the heavy pitch gradually its toll. The fourth Wold try finally arrived in the 72nd minute, this time from the forwards. With Wold camped 10 metres from the line there were a great series of pick-and-go drives before the ball was spun out to Jobe Brookes who crashed forward and offloaded brilliantly to debutant Miulo Cawkwell who scored in the corner to secure the bonus point. Wold kept pace with Stowmarket who also had a five point win, 24-19 at Wisbech.

For Wymondham there were strong runs and good defence from David Black, Matt Goodwin, Andy Macalister, who was forced off with a broken tooth, and Josh Wright.
