In front of a large crowd Wymondham left their best until last with an assured performance, beating West Norfolk 25-5.

Three second half tries, two from 'super sub' Jonathan Coltman and one from Mike Kerridge, wrapped up the game.

There was a party atmosphere at the Wymondham ground, with upwards of 300 spectators witnessing a fitting finale to the London 4NE season.

Stuart Lyle scored two penatlties to put Wymondham 6-0 up but West came back strongly on the half hour mark when a sweeping move put full-back Ross Biggs in at the corner.

Two minutes into the second half Wymondham opened up West with a clinically executed try. Quick ball at a breakdown allowed Lyle to split the defence and Kerridge was on hand to cross under the posts. Lyle's conversion gave the home side some breathing space.

Coltman got his name on the score sheet after Leathes Prior man of the match Alex Brugger danced through several tackles before linking with his opposite wing Ian Harris, who then sent Coltman under the posts.

Minutes later Coltman was the man again as Wymondham got their first pushover try of the season, leaving retiring skipper John Morfoot happy to finish off his career with a victory.
