League 1 Shield: Round-ups

League 1 Shield: Round-ups

Wins for All Golds, Coventry Bears and North Wales Crusaders in the final round of League 1 Shield games.

All Golds 33-18 South Wales Scorpions

South Wales Scorpions suffered a 33-18 defeat to Gloucestershire All Golds in their final game before the club\'s re-brand next season.

Gloucestershire ran in six tries through Jack Mitchell, Steve Perry, James Walter, James Rowland, Phil Cowburn and Lamont Bryan. Kieran Hyde kicked four conversions while Rowland added a drop goal.

Osian Phillips, Ian Newbury and Izaak Duffy crossed for South Wales, who will next season move headquarters from Caerphilly to Merthyr, where they will be known as the Ironmen, while former British and Irish Lions full-back Lee Byrne will take over as director of rugby.


Hemel Stags 12-22 Coventry Bears

Hemel Stags finished bottom of the Kingstone Press League 1 standings after losing 22-12 at home to Coventry Bears.

The Stags led 12-6 midway through the first half, boosting hopes they would finish above Oxford and South Wales Scorpions, both of whom have also only won once from 14 attempts this season.

But Jono Miliszewski slid over to ensure the scores were level at the break and Jamahl Hunte's try plus Dan Price's converted score ensured Coventry ended their season in style, finishing 11th in the table.


Oxford 6-37 North Wales Crusaders

Rob Massam touched down for a hat-trick as North Wales Crusaders won 37-6 at Oxford RLFC to secure their sixth Kingstone Press League One victory of the season.

Oxford took the lead through Nathan Kitson's fifth-minute try, which he converted, but that was as good as it got for the home side as Crusaders hit back through Tommy Holland's try and two from winger Massam to lead 16-6 at the interval.

Crusaders ran in four more tries in the second half as Simon Atherton, Kenny Baker, Massam and Alex Thompson all went over. Full-back Tommy Johnson was successful with four conversions and Ryan Smith added a late drop goal.
