London 3 East Stowmarket 76 Wisbech 0 Stowmarket continued their impressive start to the season with another well-deserved victory, writes Sue Kettle.
This was a game that from the start Stowmarket looked well capable of winning and only some poor execution prevented them from having a bonus point after 15 minutes.
However, with almost continuous pressure it was only a matter of time before the tries began to flow through Scott Woolnough, Tom Crowe, Max Crowe, Gary Goodchild, and Nik Kegge and kicks from Dan Garrard.
Whilst Wisbech were able to disrupt Stowmarket during the course of the first half, they were never able to exert any sustained pressure and regular mistakes meant what ball they did have was quickly turned over by the better organised and more focused home side.
The second half started well for the visitors, who retained procession for a majority of the opening 15 minutes, and whilst they came close to the Stowmarket line they were not able to breakdown the organised Suffolk side.

Slowly the tide again turned in Stowmarket’s favour and chances came again through Max Crowe. A crucial part of the half unfolded as prop Ben Honeyball fielded and returned kick-off for two tries under the posts.
Just after this the Wisbech prop talked himself into a yellow card, and then continued to talk himself into a red card.

Stowmarket can take a very positive attitude from this performance and with other players looking to make it into the squad the future looks very healthy for Stowmarket, and encouraging for new coach John Holton.
