The abrupt end to the rugby season means that Enfield Ignatians' Under-14s were the last Blue & Gold side to take to the field, winning 31-25 away at Epping Upper Clapton.

The side have come a long way this season, winning four of their eight games after suffering a heavy 35-0 defeat on the opening day.

After losing 27-10 to Clapton back in October, Ignatians were fearing a repeat when they trailed 10-0 in this one.

However, tries from Eric Nagy (two), Ben Jones, Louis Manzi and Henry Sibley helped turn the game around, with conversions coming from Jones and Ben Roper (two).

Under-14s coach Kevin Linnane said: "We travelled with a squad of 18 and roll-on and roll-off subs worked really well for us. Everyone got a game although I was worried after we went two scores down.

"However, we told the boys that this could be their last game of the season and to approach it as if it were a cup final. The response was magnificent as was the support play. The build-up to one of the tries saw the ball pass through nine pair of hands.

"It wasn't so much the final result but the way in which we approached the game that gave me most satisfaction as a coach."
