Crusaders battle past Skolars

Crusaders are just a point behind Kingstone Press Championship 1 leaders Oldham after a 20-14 win at third-placed London Skolars.


The Skolars were looking for a third consecutive victory and they made a promising start when Alex Anthony\'s third-minute try was converted by Dylan Skee.


But the Welsh side hit back to lead 12-8 at the break, with Jono Smith and Leon Brennan crossing either side of a Skee penalty and Tommy Johnson adding the extras on both occasions.


The home side were back in front when Martyn Smith\'s try was converted by Skee, but Crusaders were not to be denied as Toby Adamson touched down with 20 minutes remaining and Johnson converted before his penalty sailed through the posts nine minutes from time.
