Beccles II 53, Watton 15
IN a friendly at Beef Meadow, Beccles started well and after a period of pressure, Holtzer powered over for the opening score.
The next try came when Dyer hacked on a loose ball and won the race to touch down. Dyer also added 13 points with the boot during the game and was made the White Horse man of the match.
Beccles were giving a debut to another overseas player, New Zealander Sam Williamson, who showed that he will be a good addition to the first team back line. He added the next try when he beat a number of defenders to score. As the match moved towards half-time Beccles scored again, with Porter charging over in the corner; giving Beccles a half-time lead of 24-0.
