Sunday 20th February 2011

Valley Cougars 6 South Wales Scorpions 70 Story in brief:
Despite an early score from Welsh Champions Valley Cougars, South Wales Scorpions had no problems in seeing off their hosts in their final pre-season friendly.

The Scorpions know that they will have more stiff opposition in Dewsbury Rams on Sunday 6th March in the Challenge Cup at The Gnoll, but their 70-8 will be a great boost to their confidence.

Scorpions to face Dewsbury at home in the Challenge Cup

The game will be the Scorpions' first in rugby's oldest knockout cup competition and will be played at The Gnoll in Neath. The expected date and time is Sunday 6th March at 3pm but this is yet to be confirmed.

Dewsbury are one of Rugby League's oldest clubs. They won the League Championship Grand Final in 1973 and were led by now commentator Mike "Stevo" Stephenson and Welshman Greg Ashcroft, who went on to have an active involvement in local leagues in Wales, coaching both Blackwood Bulldogs and Valley Cougars in the past.
