Enfield Ignatians completed an unbeaten October in London 3 North West as they eased past struggling Harrow 24-3.

Shane Manning’s side had already recorded good wins against Finsbury Park and Finchley earlier in the month and their winning feeling continued thanks to Jonathan Hamilton’s brace and a further try from Liam Dunne.

Having lost Dave Gear to a hamstring injury in the warm-up, Ignatians were forced to reorganise before the game had even started, and it showed with a sloppy start to proceedings.

They weren’t helped by a violent wind either, but the visitors fell behind from a long-range penalty despite putting up a stubborn defence against a wave of Harrow attacks.

Ignatians eventually gained a measure of control and, having camped inside Harrow territory for a significant period of time, a succession of forward drives eventually allowed number eight Hamilton to go over.

Jake Bates added the extras to make it a seven-point score, and he soon added a penalty to ensure Ignatians held a 10-3 lead at the break.

The visitors made a number of changes at the interval, introducing the fresh legs of Alberto di Dio, Dan redding and Luke Stack, while prop Dom Nott continued on from an excellent first-half performance.

More camping in the forward areas eventually brought about the second try, Dunne forcing himself over the line this time and Bates again adding the conversion.

Missed chances and more sloppy play looks like it was going to be Ignatians’ undoing, but they soon made the game safe when Hamilton went over from a five-metre scrum for his second of the afternoon, Bates converting once more.

After the game, head coach Manning said: “It was good to get another away win, but to miss out of the bonus point was very disappointing. Had we stuck to our game plan, we would have scored more tries.

“On the plus side, our dominant scrum went very well as did our maul. The defence by our backs was excellent in the conditions.”

The side missed out on the fourth-try bonus point, but the win sees them sit dead in mid-table in sixth, two points behind both Finsbury Park and Cheshunt ahead of their next game at home to Stevenage Town on Saturday, November 9.
