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.

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.
