The Aviva Premiership final may be six months away but North Walsham Under-12s will be counting down the days after booking their spot at Twickenham with victory in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.

Nar Valley Fisheries recorded its fifth reported 40lb-plus carp of the season. Chris Abbott fished Lake Geneva for a 48-hour session and ended up with the catch of a lifetime. Chris, a former site record holder, had fish rolling in front of him and the result was a common of 30lb 12oz, mirrors of 33lb 12oz, 37lb 4oz  and the Nar Valley Fisheries record mirror of 45lb 2oz.

The big blow from the Arctic snow plains passed without visible damage to Broads fish stocks populating the vulnerable tidal rivers open to toxic sea surges.

Harleston Magpies made the long journey to Brighton and returned home with a hard-earned point – although it should really have been all three.

Harleston Magpies were unable to follow up their superb win of the previous weekend against leaders Slough as Hampstead and Westminister scored late on to take all three points in a 2-1 win.

Hayley Toleman scored twice as Norwich Dragons beat Tunbridge Wells 6-2 to make it four straight wins.

Ryan Crisp scored Derehams first-half equaliser at Diss last night. Picture: Mark Bullimore

Ryman League North side Dereham came from behind to see off their plucky Thurlow Nunn League opponents in an entertaining tie at Brewers Green Lane last night.

Matt Jarry-Ryan’s brace of tries in Holt's win at Basildon put him on 108 tries in 108 games.

Holt ran out deserved winners in Essex, with the bonus point moving their league tally to 26 points, just five short of top spot.


Diss succumbed to their first league defeat of the season in a match that they should have had sewn up by half-time.

After the wonderfully committed performance to draw 3-3 at Diss the previous week, Norwich were brought down to earth by a very competent Saffron Walden side.

In conditions that a traditionalist might call ‘proper rugby weather’, but most people would call ghastly, the Vikings ground out a solid win against their winless opponents without ever taking full advantage of lengthy periods of dominance.
