Letchworth suffered a heavy defeat at Chingford as London One North resumed after the Christmas break.

The Legends went down 53-5 in north east London against the side currently third in the league table.

A few Letchworth players carried injuries into the game and they fell behind to an early Chingford penalty. The hosts then moved the ball upfield in a succession of drives until they played the ball out wide for an overlap to go over in the corner.

Another two tries followed to make the score 24-0 and all but end the tie as a contest.

After the break Letchworth picked up the baton for a good period of time however Chingford broke out in one fine move to allow their winger to score in the corner.

A break by Richard Stokes saw Phil Amuaniuna stopped short of the line but further drives led by James Eliaschewsky saw Ben Cullen go over for Legends’ only score of the game.

Despite several sorties into the home side’s 22 it was all Chingford at the death with three late scores leaving the ledger somewhat unbalanced.
