Herons recorded a 22-6 win at Roding Lane North on Saturday

David Wiggins hailed the Wanstead defence after a 22-6 win at home to Norwich in London Two North East.

Tim Coughlan, Joe Jones, Scott Bird and Alfie Cox all ran in tries for the Herons in the success as they try to bridge the gap to leaders Rochford.

The match also saw the Roding Lane North club concede their fewest points in a fixture so far this term.

And it was their Wanstead in keeping the Norwich attack at bay that particularly impressed head coach Wiggins at the weekend.

“It was a very important win for us and it was a less in how to win the game without the ball,” he said.

“Our defence was great and I think that is what won us the game.”

“Once we shut them down, Norwich had little to offer and we were able to take advantage of the opportunities to score four tries.”
