CAMELOT were forced to abandon play against Enfield Ignatians in the second round of the RFU National Intermediate Cup on Saturday.

Losing 29-6 in the second-half, the visitors ended the match after Rhys Williams was taken to hospital with a dislocated knee.

Enfield opened the scoring with a try after five minutes after breaking the visitors’ defence following a lineout.

Camelot fought back and Richard Woodard slotted between the posts to narrow the score to 5-3 after 29 minutes.

The teams traded penalties, with Woodard making it 8-6, before Enfield also won another penalty which they kicked successfully.

Camelot suffered a blow shortly after the start of the second half as wing Carl Buckingham was sin-binned for ten minutes for holding on.

The home side took advantage and launched a catch and drive move from the lineout to score a try which stretched their lead to 16-6.

They then won a penalty shortly afterwards which they kicked successfully before scoring another try, making the score 26-8.

Despite the return of Buckingham, Camelot conceded another penalty in front of the posts which was converted.

The visitors received a final blow at a ruck when Williams went down and the game was abandoned.
