3:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
London Skolars booked a Championship One play-off place for the first time after a dramatic 30-28 win at South Wales Scorpions on Sunday.
The visitors opened up an early lead after James Anthony crossed the line.
But the Scorpions profited from an error by the Skolars which allowed Haydn Peacock to score.
Gareth Raynor restored Joe Mbu’s side lead but Dalton Grant responded for the Welsh side in an entertaining contest.
The Skolars replied with a decent finish from Mike Worrincy and Dylan Skee converted his own try to hand the visitors a 28-10 lead at the break.
London Skolars extended their lead after the restart when Erjon Dollapi raced on to a chip and touched the ball down.
The hosts responded with tries from Dom Crosby, Ben Moores and George Clarke which gave them a 28-24 lead with 13 minutes remaining.
But a late try from Raynor proved crucial as they edged to the win at The Gnoll.
