History in the making for Scorpions

South Wales Scorpions, in only their third season, will make their first overseas trip when they play Toulouse on Saturday night.

Scorpions coach Dave Clark said: “This is the first time the Scorpions have been overseas to play anyone, so there’s a bit of history making for us this week.

“The boys have been bouncing all week and it will be good for us to go over there and play against a team like Toulouse.”

Scorpions were beaten 38-30 by London Skolars last week, while Toulouse are yet to win a game in this season’s competition, although they did put up a second half comeback against Batley last weekend.

Clark added: “They’re a competitive team. They’ve done very well in the French competition, as well as competing with the likes of Keighley Cougars in the Northern Rail Cup.

“We’re expecting a physically tough challenge and we’re prepared for that.”

Toulouse are without Fijian star Eloni Vunakece because of a knee injury, while new signing Shane Blackett has not arrived in time for the game.
