Jake Bates produced a fine solo performance to aid Enfield Ignatians’ survival hopes in London 2 North West, scoring all their points in a 19-7 win over Chiswick.

Four penalties and a try were enough for Ignatians to add to their previous week’s win against Welwyn.

A fine break from Michael Hall got the game going as he laid it on for Bates to go over, and the captain added three penalties to that total to put Ignatians in control.

The visitors came out firing in the second half and used the wind to their advantage, and they were eventually awarded a penalty try after repeated team infringement, and they converted.

However, Ignatians bounced back and another Bates penalty added some further gloss to the scoreline and into a better position in the table ahead of their trip to Hampstead on Saturday, March 23.

The club also hosted the inaugural Enfield Ignatians Under-13s girl’s rugby Waterfall tournament, with Welwyn and Old Albanians drawing 17-17 in the final and Ignatians beating Cheshunt in the seventh and eighth-place play-offs.
