Enfield Ignatians showed their true colours after they demolished visiting Harpenden 39-20 in London Two North-West at Donkey Lane last weekend.

The Blue and Golds were quick off the block as Jack Bates rifled over two penalties in five minutes.

Christo Kasabi and Robert Rigby both increased Ignatians’ lead before Harpenden opened their try account from the catch and drive at the lineout.

But the home side produced the perfect reply as they claimed their third try minutes after as in-form winger Cairo Sango took the ball over the line.

Bates continued to turn the screw as he added a third conversion to take a 27-8 lead into the interval.

And once again Ignatians made the perfect start in the second half as Jack Wilson intercepted a wayward Harpenden pass and ran in from his own 22-metre line to claim a score.

But the visitors did not give in and certainly had their moments as they prospered once again via the driving maul and executed a second pushover.

Harpenden scored through their full-back but a sweeping move saw Sango add his second try.

They brought the score to within 12 points but any notion of a comeback was soon short lived after a sweeping counter-attack from Sango saw him score his second of the game with the conversion successful.

Ignatians have a week off before they take on Harrow on Saturday, October 22.

Elsewhere, the seconds suffered their first defeat of the season after going down 38-17 to Welwyn IIs in Herts-Middlesex Merit Table Two while the threes were beaten 66-0 at Tring IIIs.

Ignatians Under-15s had better news as they gained their second win of the season hammering Hampstead 80-17, as they ran in 12 tries with Jamal Daley-Bonner crossing the whitewash seven times.
