An injury depleted Woodbridge held energetic Ely Tigers at bay by trading kicks for the first fifteen minutes, Tiger Jake Alsop putting in some great carries and Warrior Owen Scott worked hard at the breakdown. Predatory Ely full back; Matt McCarthy finished a 5m siege to score. Woodbridge failed to take advantage of Ely penalties and it was No8 Jacob Muncey that pounced next. Woodbridge Angus Clogg took their only 3 points before Muncey scored on half time to make it 15-3.
The second half saw a tiring Woodbridge defending against an ever livelier Ely who looked a co-ordinated and well coached unit running in six further tries through hooker Nathan Brookes and backs Paul Dewey (two), Luke Turner, James Buckland and McCarthy scoring again. Woodbridge defended hard but with many regular players missing and others playing out of position it was an achievement to restrict the tries to six.
