Official Match Report

Scorpions edge out Stags

South Wales Scorpions were made to battle before holding on for a 16-14 Kingstone Press Championship 1 win over Hemel Stags.

Billy Sheen crossed for a fifth-minute try to put the Scorpions ahead but that was soon cancelled out by Jamie O'Callaghan.

Osian Phillips then went over on the half-time hooter and Jack Murphy added the goal to give the hosts a 10-4 advantage.

Barry John Swindles then converted his own score seven minutes into the second period to level the scores.

But still the Scorpions came back and Joe Bullock went over eight minutes from time with Murphy's goal restoring the six-point lead.

Mason Caton-Brown crossed the whitewash in the final minute but the Stags failed to add the goal for a draw and had to settle for a losing bonus point.
