The rain set in from the start and decided the type of rugby that was going to be played.
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.
In the second half the heavens opened and slowed play down.
The wet weather killed any flowing rugby. The Tigers won the line-out on the opposition twenty-two.
The ball was shipped wide to Jake Alsop who dotted down for a converted try. Wymondham edged closer with a converted penalty of their own.
