The second game of the season started with Regent House try within 3 minutes of the starting whistle. Having won the restart scrum on the halfway Enniskillen lost the ball in open play. The regent ball carriers showed skill in moving the ball wide and then back into the middle of the pitch where their forwards powered over to touch down.
With a start like that Enniskillen did really well to immediately neutralise the Regent game and through a series of penalties and lineouts started to move up the pitch towards the Regent try line. Cameron Smith and Tadgh Hambly soon distributed the ball to Alex Howe playing at 12 who duly ran in the first Enniskillen try of the match.
With the first score on the board the team started to find momentum. Alex Howe ran in a second try and as the first half drew to a close Noah Quigley showed his power and ran straight through the Regent pack, shrugged of two tackles and put down the third Enniskillen try.
Jake Wood linked well with the back line throughout the second half and claimed two tries for his efforts. Ben Foster, Daniel Balfour and Harry Parkinson all showed their potential throughout the game.
The Enniskillen front row of Amos Johnston, Will Kennedy and Enda Love handled the pressure in the scrum. They were well supported by the second row forwards Noah Quigley and Harvey Little and the back row of James Morrison (c), Louis Burns and Baden Johnstone. Louis Burns scored a classic forwards try in the latter stages of the first half with a strong pick and carry from loose ball at the ruck.
Armagh are the next opponents and will be a much stronger test of the team’s progress.
