Match Preview


Skolars at full strength

London Skolars coach Joe Mbu has a fully fit squad to pick from for the Kingstone Press Championship 1 clash with South Wales Scorpions after three weeks without a competitive game.

Mbu said: "I'd have preferred us to have been playing, but we've made good use of this time. We've looked at a few things we needed to work on and been able to train hard without the added worry about whether people are fit for each weekend."

On the Scorpions, Mbu said: "Every team will look to improve as the season goes on.

"I never underestimate teams and every time we play someone we know they'll be stronger than the last time we played them. We'll give them all the respect that's due."

Courtney Davies returns to the South Wales Scorpions squad after missing last week's win against Rochdale Hornets through injury.

South Wales coach Dave Clark said: "Our structure is now there and we showed against Rochdale that we can compete against the sides that are tipped for the top.

"We've only been in the competition for three years and some of our guys have only played rugby league for two or three years, so we're learning all the time."

He added: "Playing London at their place is always a very tough game, no matter where they are in the competition."
