Enfield Ignatians still a work in progress says coach Emile Hertz
5:35pm Wednesday 27th February 2013 in Sport
Emile Hertz insists Enfield Ignatians are “very much a work in progress” despite his side defeating Braintree 27-22 – their third straight victory in London Two North East.
Ignatians started the contest poorly and went behind to a well-taken penalty.
After their indifferent first period display, Enfield were much improved after the interval and took control of the contest.
Tom Moore, Shaun Engelbrecht, Shaun Quinn and Christo Kasabi all went over in quick succession and Jordan Wilson converted twice to help Ignatians establish a healthy 24-3 lead.
Braintree reduced the deficit with a converted try but Sam Clark scored a drop goal to keep Enfield comfortably ahead.
A late surge from the visitors saw them go over twice in three minutes but they were unable to complete an unlikely comeback and Enfield claimed their seventh win out of eight home matches this season.
Ignatians coach Hertz said: ”We’re still very much a work in progress and, in addition to the objective of finishing the season strongly, we are also building with next season in mind.”
Ignatians entertain Lowestoft & Yarmouth in the league at Donkey Lane on Saturday.
