This weekend Norwich Rugby Football Club sponsored by Anglian Home Improvements took on Beccles at home for their latest match.
Supporters from both teams offered great encouragement and support in a fiercely fought game. Considered to be as much of a local derby as the Holt v North Walsham game; Beccles were expected to win, however Norwich came away the victors, securing the valuable points to go to the top of the league table.

Norwich determined to hang on to the lead in the final minutes
It seemed that every time Norwich made it into opposition’s half, they gave away their possession. The game had many highlights, with the pressure from both the teams reverting back and forth during the game, with Norwich managing to hang on in the final minutes until the end as the winners.
Congratulations to Norwich! Final score Norwich RFC 19 – Beccles RFC 16.
