Kingstone Press League 1 Preview: South Wales Scorpions v London Skolars

Mike Grady, the South Wales Scorpions coach, is hoping his side can bounce back from the loss to the University of Gloucestershire All Golds.

“It was disappointing last week, we didn’t compete really so I’m looking for some kind of reaction this week,” he said. “I think the game against Skolars will be tough.

“Jermaine’s come in and obviously shaken them up a bit because the result they had was a massive improvement. He’s obviously done something and the boys are obviously playing for their shirts.

“I expect it to be a tough one. Jermaine’s a good bloke and a good coach and he’ll have them fired up I’m sure.”

Jermaine Coleman, the new London Skolars coach, said of his side’s defeat at the hands of Hemel Stags: “It was an interesting game.

“I thought the boys showed a lot of commitment and heart and considering they’d only had six training sessions under me they attempted to do what I asked them to do.

“I think ultimately we are lacking in a few areas and were more conscious about making errors, which is understandable under a new coach, but there were plenty of positives.

“I suppose South Wales are going through a bit of a transition like Skolars. Mike is doing a pretty good job down there in bringing a lot of young kids through.

“I think he’s doing it right; the way forward is to develop your own and they have a clear understanding of what direction they’re going in. Youth and enthusiasm brings its own challenges. It will be an interesting contest.”
