Scorpions pinch Welsh full back from rivals


South Wales Scorpions have strengthened their squad with the acquisition of Welsh-born full-back Curtis Cunningham from London Skolars.
The 23-year old started playing rugby league with Cardiff Demons in 2008 after being spotted by then Celtic Crusaders coach John Dixon when training with his local rugby union club in Cardiff.
He was an instant hit and joined the Crusaders in 2009, scoring four tries in his 18 appearances for their Super League reserves team.
Cunningham scored two tries in his nine appearances for the Skolars in their Northern Rail Cup and Co-operative Championship 1 games this season. His final game for the Skolars was actually against the Scorpions on Sunday 28th March at The Gnoll.
Scorpions’ coach Anthony Seibold said: “We’re pleased to welcome Curtis into the squad and to have yet another Welsh player in the club. He has done well for Cardiff Demons, Celtic Crusaders reserves and now London Skolars over the last two years and we’re looking forward to seeing how he does back here at the Scorpions.”
London Skolars’ head coach James Massara added: “We wish him all the best. It’s been a pleasure having him down here in London and I’m sure he’ll do well back home in South Wales.”
