London Skolars 39-20 South Wales Scorpions (Sun)

South Wales Scorpions suffered a fifth defeat in a row to London Skolars as the hosts dominated the second half of a scrappy game.

Skolars' win takes them off the bottom of the table as the Scorpions started their four games on the road with a loss.

The Welsh took the lead in just the third minute when James Tutuila fed Dalton Grant to ground in the corner.

Andy McLean hit back for Skolars but Grant grabbed his second for Scorpions before Haydn Peacock stretched the visitors' lead.

Skolars dominated the rest of the game, though, with tries from James Anthony, Michael Worrincy (2), Dylan Skee and Alex Hurst pulling them clear - with Peacock claiming his second the only Scorpions score.
