Repeated infringements saw Wymondham pin Ely back with penalties. A quick tap penalty saw them rumble over for a converted try.

The Tigers answered with a penalty of their own, Joel Scott Paul slotted the close range shot at goal.

Ely soon found their way back into the opposition half, a quick switch of play saw John Dibb dive over in the corner for an unconverted try.
