London Skolars 40-34 Oxford RLFC
Thomas leads Skolars home
Robert Thomas helped himself to four tries as a superb second-half performance saw London Skolars overcome Oxford 40-34 in Kingstone Press Championship 1.
It was the visitors who took the early initiative as tries from Sean Morris, Lucas Onyango and Shaun Robinson gave Oxford an 18-6 lead at the break, with Jonny Leather adding three goals.
Michael Worrincy crossed the whitewash for London Skolars, but much more was to come after the break as Thomas terrorised the visitors, while Ade Adebisi and Alex Hurst also got in on the try scoring.
Oxford picked up further tries from Robinson, his second of the afternoon, Leather and John Clough but it wasn't enough to stop the home side.
