Hemel at home in the Challenge Cup

By Ian Golden | 25/02/2014

South Wales Scorpions have been drawn at home to fellow Championship 1 side Hemel Stags in the Third Round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.

The tie is expected to be played on Sunday 16th March at Maesteg RFC with a 3pm kick-off.

New Scorpions coach Mike Grady was pleased that his side have a home game.

“Anyone we would be facing in this round would be tough,” he said. “But at least we’re at home and it’s someone in our division so we’re in with a chance.

“I’m looking forward to meeting Hemel again. When I was coaching Warrington Wizards, we faced them a few times and they were always a tough passionate side. I’m sure that nothing has changed and we look forward to a good clash at Maesteg on March 16th.
