Stags off the mark
Hemel Stags got their inaugural Kingstone Press Championship 1 campaign off to a flying start as they beat London Skolars 26-8 in the capital.
Joel Miranda was the first to go over with Mike Bishay adding the extras and Harry Mostyn put the Stags 10-0 up before a David Stephenson score cut the lead to six points at half-time.
But Hemel put the game out of reach with 12 points in six second-half minutes as Bishay kicked a goal and then converted his own try before Mason Caton-Brown also went over.
Jack Dillon and Mostyn traded tries in the last 10 minutes to complete the scoring.
