Scorpions very happy with start to schools comp
SOUTH Wales Scorpions were delighted at the success of the launch of their primary schools rugby league competition, which is being sponsored by the South Wales Evening Post.
Five teams were at The Gnoll last Sunday, each playing two eight-minute seven-a-side games, and the enthusiasm was electric.
"It was fantastic to see so many children enjoying playing rugby league at The Gnoll," said Scorpions chairman Phil Davies.
"We're delighted that they had such a good time and we look forward to seeing them again on Sunday, March 24, when they will play another set of mini games before and at half-time of our match against Oldham."

The club has received some welcome feedback via email.
Louise Carney, a teacher at Gnoll Primary School, said: "Thank you for everything last Sunday. The children and parents were very impressed and everyone had a very good day."
Idris Evans, head coach of the Cardiff Demons primary school side, added: "We really enjoyed the games and the opportunity to play at the stadium."
And Jason Bridgeman from Crynallt Junior School in Cimla said: "Although a rather cold day, the feedback so far is that the children enjoyed and found it good to be playing on The Gnoll.
"We look forward to the next meeting, but the children, parents and teachers please ask can you turn up the heating next time!"
With the tournament going on into the summer, the organisers don't think that will be a problem.
First day's results:
Cardiff Demons 0 Gnoll Tigers 1; MN Crimson Crusaders 0 Crynallt Crusaders 3; Team Tonnau 0 Gnoll Tigers 1; Cardiff Demons 0 MN Crimson Crusaders 0; Crynallt Crusaders 2 Team Tonnau 1.
The table (alongside) is calculated initially on tries scored rather than wins and draws. For those who have not scored a try yet, don't worry, there's still plenty of time.
Unfortunately, for reasons beyond their control, Waunceirch Warriors were unable to join in last weekend. But they will be in for the rest of the tournament and will start a little earlier for them to play four games on Sunday, March 24, when the Scorpions host Oldham Roughyeds at The Gnoll.
