The second teams of both clubs arranged a friendly match, IW lending several players to the depleted opposition. Conditions verged on impossible but both sides did their best, IW dominating by keeping possession and running hard and straight. Tries came from Jayme Bishop, Salar Bettum (2), visiting player Caleb Mitchell and Harry Elsom. IW II maintained their excellent record this season, and have now conceded a total of only 17 points in 5 home games, including three clean sheets. They next travel to Romsey for a friendly on 5 January.
