Norwich Lions Steal a Victory Against Enfield

12th January 2015

Norwich Rugby Club have had a tough end to 2014 suffering 5 defeats in their last 5 games. The New Year didn’t have the best of starts, but a couple of weeks in and it seems their season might be on the turn for the good again.

Saturday 10th saw Norwich travel to play Enfield Ignatians in what turned out to be an entertaining, close fought match.

The home side opened the scoring through winger Ryan Browne who burst free on the blind side to score in the corner. Jordan Wilson failed to convert in the blustering wind.

Norwich came back quickly though with Michael Campton-Smith being a constant nuisance for the defence, eventually breaking it down to score a try that was converted by JC Brown.

The visitors played some attractive rugby and were unlucky not to score under the posts shortly after, but the chances created were spurned. Enfield gave the ball away moments later with the ball being pumped forward by Norwich. Martin Cullum chased it down and managed to break away scoring under the posts, giving Brown an easy conversion.

Playing into the wind in the second half, Norwich knew it was going to be tricky, however, they battled hard and eventually grabbed another try. Stuart Cameron went over in the corner following a fantastic break by Brown. This time, the conversion was missed.

Norwich scored again after a quick penalty with Laurence Austin powering over near the posts leaving Brown a relatively easy conversion.

Enfield forced their way back into the game in the final moments with Jake Bates grabbing two tries, both of which were converted. It was too little too late though as when the ball passed through the posts for the second conversion, the final whistle blew.

The final score Enfield 19 – 26 Norwich. Much needed win for the Norwich Lions and one that will hopefully get them back on the winning track.
