Scorpions on the up, says coach
SOUTH Wales Scorpions coach Dave Clark believes his side's campaign is gathering momentum ahead of tomorrow's Northern Rail Cup tie with Oldham Roughyeds at The Gnoll (3pm).
The clash is the final game of the group stages, with both sides needing big victories to keep alive their faint hopes of qualification to the knockout stages.
"We're starting to build some momentum and I was quite happy with our defence last week," said Clark, who is considering naming an unchanged line-up following last weekend's hard-earned win over Hemel Stags.
"When we lost at home to London three weeks ago I called for a big improvement, and I feel we've been working hard on our weaknesses.

"Take last week when we were two tries down going into the latter stages of the game. We fought back and scored two excellent tries to secure the win when last year we'd have collapsed.
"James Tutuila, who isn't used to playing on fields as bad we did last week, played his best game so far, scoring the penultimate try and creating the final one.
"But it was a good team effort and hopefully we can keep up the momentum this week as we approach the start of the Championship season.
"This week we're playing against a side that will be in the top three or four at the end of the season. Physically it will be a challenge, but we're starting to adapt to that and this will give us a bit of a benchmark."
