BECCLES travelled to North Walsham for a friendly - an open, high-scoring game - and gave a chance to some of the players who have been playing well in the seconds.
In the pack were Pitts, Porter, King, Hewitt and Sutton while Davey-Durak and Hall came in to a reshuffled back line. Wade was skipper for the day and made the move from centre to fly-half. On the bench Goode and Driver made their first appearances in the first team.

North Walsham went ahead through an unconverted try. Beccles began to dominate the set pieces with the experience of Johnstone and Giddings showing. Beccles were soon on the score sheet when the ball went wide and Calver sprinted in to score. A similar move soon after saw Calver score again.
Musker McIntyre MoM Geyser was tackling everything that moved and was also carrying the ball well. From one of his breaks Davey-Durak went over to score. After a number of drives Wade found himself in the clear to touch down for 26-5.
In the second half Walsham were soon back in the game when a quickly taken penalty led to a try. However, Beccles replied almost immediately when Davey-Durak picked up a loose ball and sprinted clear to score.
Walsham reduced the gap with another try and again Beccles responded with one of their own. A crunching tackle by Davey-Durak in the middle of the park sent the ball loose. Hewitt hacked on a couple of times and collected. He was stopped just short of the line but fed the ball to Veasey-Lark who scored. Wade added the conversion.
Walsham came back with two late tries but Beccles lasted out for the final few minutes.
