London 2NE: Enfield Ignatians 40, Beccles 29

PUBLISHED: 16:04 02 April 2012

Beccles were finally condemned to relegation from London 2NE after Saturday’s defeat at Enfield.

The visitors had briefly threatened a rare success as they led 18-14 at half-time.

Beccles were 12-0 ahead after 15 minutes following tries from Marcus Sale and Stefan Holmes.

Enfield responded with a try of their own, but a couple of well taken Luke Wade penalties, allied to a conversion of the first try, extended the visitors’ lead to 18-7.

The hosts then scored a converted try before half-time.

Two more tries after the break gave Ignatians the lead for the first time, before Beccles’ Wade atoned for two earlier second-half misses with a successful penalty strike.

Ignatians secured the points with two further tries, before the spirited Beccles side rallied for a third try via Sam Long – but it was too late to stave off the drop.
