Championship 1 Preview: Gloucestershire All Golds v South Wales Scorpions

Gloucestershire All Golds coach Brad Hepi wants smarter play from his side – but admits he could not fault their effort in last week’s defeat against North Wales Crusaders.

Hepi said: “We played from the first whistle to the last, and in patches we showed what we’re capable of, but when you sit down and analyse it we played some really dumb football.”

The All Golds are still searching for their first Kingstone Press Championship One win of the season.

South Wales Scorpions travel to Cheltenham without Courtney Davies, but Kristian Hawkes is expected to feature after a recent ankle injury and loan signing Grant Gore should make his debut.

Scorpions coach Dave Clark said: “We’ve got the second worse defensive record in the competition and that’s something we’ve got to concentrate on.

“If we give the All Golds field position they’ll ask questions of us. We’ve got to be smart.”

However, Clark believes his side are heading in the right direction.

He said: “We’re in a better position than last year. We only won four games last year, and we’ve got three from six so far this time around.”
