Scorpions to name unchanged side

South Wales Scorpions are unlikely to make many changes from the side that beat Oldham Roughyeds last week.

 

Scorpions coach Anthony Seibold confirmed that no major injuries were picked up in the 42-24 win, so all 17 players are available for selection.

 

David James, who was 18th man last week, will also be considered. Joe McLochlan and Joe Burke are also back in contention.

 

Seibold said: “After a couple of tough away trips it’s great to be back at the Gnoll in Neath for this Sunday’s game against Doncaster.

 

“They are one of the form teams in the second half of the competition after a tough start to the season and are challenging for a play-off position after winning seven of their past 14 games.

 

“They have won big games over Swinton and Rochedale recently and we also know what attacking threat they pose after scoring 66 points over Gateshead last week.

 

Rob Lunt, Dean Colton, Craig Fawcett and Jack Ely are all players we have to contain. The challenge for our team is to play with some level consistency and prepare well.”

 

Doncaster RLFC are four points adrift of the Co-operative Championship One play-off places, but Chief Executive Carl Hall said: “We still have a possible chance.

 

“We are still in there fighting and all being well it could all come down to our last game against Workington.”
