London Skolars 44-28 Hemel Stags
Skolars end Stags' season
London Skolars produced a stunning first-half performance en route to a 44-28 victory over Hemel Stags to set up a Kingstone Press Championship 1 semi-final play-off against Oldham.
The hosts held a handsome 38-0 advantage at half-time thanks to a hat-trick of tries from Alex Hurst, two from Alex Anthony and a touch down each from Oscar and Robert Thomas, with Dylan Skee converting five.
Smokie Junor dashed over four minutes after the interval to extend the Skolars' lead further, but that sparked the Stags into life and they scored five tries of their own in a 26-minute burst.
Mike Forgham and Aiden Pritchard crossed in quick succession before James Hill, Barry John Swindells, who booted four conversions, and Ben Young also went over.
Oscar Thomas took over kicking duties from Skee and sent over a last-minute penalty for London.
