Enfield Ignatians Twos suffered defeat against Herts-Middlesex Merit Table One leaders Old Haberdashers Twos
10:00am Wednesday 30th January 2013 in Sport
With the first team not in action, Enfield Ignatians Twos took centre stage but suffered a 24-9 defeat at Herts-Middlesex Merit Table One leaders Old Haberdashers Twos.
Three successful James Barber penalties kept the visitors in touch and they went in at the break 12-9 behind.
However, the home side improved in the second period and they scored 12 unanswered points to run out decisive winners.
Team spokesman Andy Roper said: "The game was not played at Old Haberdashers home-base in Hertfordshire but at Chiswick following some frantic ringing-around. We played well in parts but just couldn't get over the line and score a try."
The Ignatians first team's home clash against Braintree in London Two North-East was a casualty of the recent cold weather.
It means Ignatians first team will have a busier than planned February with at least one more fixture added to the schedule.
This includes the away clash at Ipswich, which the Rugby Football Union have decided will now be played on Saturday, February 2.
Emile Hertz's men had been due to travel to Suffolk to play the game on January 19th until the big freeze set-in.
The Ipswich match will present a tough test for Ignatians.
Currently lying second, Ipswich will be anxious to get their promotion push back on track after an away defeat at Holt.
The Suffolk side have scored close to 300 points on their home patch after winning six of their seven games during which time they have run-in 49 tries.
