Enfield Ignatians responded in the best way following last week's heavy defeat to HAC as they beat London Nigerians 24-3 in a London Two North-West fixture at Donkey Lane.

The hosts produced a dominant display as the blue and golds were 12-3 in front at the interval following two tries from Cairo Sango and Luke Ellis.

Sango latched onto Wilson's pinpoint kick which fell behind the defence and Ellis stole the ball from Nigerians' grasp after the visitors had originally won a defensive lineout.

Ignatians continued their ascendancy in the second half and made sure the game was in their grasp after Sando latched onto a small kick from Wilson before Luke Stack charged over from close range in the final minute.

The victory came to a close when Jake Bates added two conversions to their score to avenge their 43-24 loss to their opponents back in October.

Coach Ali Cook said: "I was hoping all week that the HAC defeat (January 7) would provoke a reaction, and thought that the players really looked themselves in the mirror after the previous game and deserved the win from the first minute.

"The great thing was that our try line wasn't breached. We moved up a couple of notches and played the game in the right areas of the field, and it was a really great team effort from one to 18 (all players used)."

The blue and golds are next in league action on Saturday, January 28 when they visit Harpenden.
