Championship One preview: Gloucestershire v South Wales

Gloucestershire All Golds coach Brad Hepi could name an unchanged side for Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship One fixture with South Wales Scorpions.

The All Golds earned a bonus point in their defeat against York City Knights last week.

Hepi said: “For a new team with 10 debutants it was very pleasing. It augurs well for the rest of the season.”

Shaun Owens and Alan Pope could both return to the Scorpions’ squad, with coach Mike Grady looking to build on last week’s 18-4 defeat against Oldham.

Grady said: “I was gutted to miss out on a bonus point, but we produced a good display and certainly put in the effort and enthusiasm.

“This game is probably looked at as a must-win for both sides; we both had decent results against top sides last week, and we’ll be looking to kick-start our season on Sunday.”
