Three Scorpions players in Team of the Week

By Ian Golden | 01/04/2014

South Wales Scorpions have three players in the Kingstone Press Championship 1 Team of the Week following their efforts against Hemel Stags last Sunday.

Connor Farrer, Chris Vitalini and captain Phil Carleton were arguably three of the hardest working players in the Scorpions side with Carleton’s final minute try being unlucky not to get the Try of the Week.

Scorpions coach Mike Grady said: “I'm delighted for the boys named in the Team of the Week.

“We are learning and improving as a group each week and this is recognition of that.

“I've said all along that the effort is there from the individuals. Phil, Chris and Connor are a big part of what we are doing here and this is fully deserved of their efforts.”

Commenting on the 34-16 defeat to Hemel Stags where the Scorpions narrowly missed out on a bonus points, Grady said: “Our performance was definitely an improvement on last week and even on a fortnight ago. The effort was there but we lacked application.

“If we could have cut out the errors we’d have had a chance of winning last Sunday. I felt it was a game lost, we got back to old habits, but we need to take the positives and go forward.

“We’ve just the one game in April so there’s a lot for us to work on.”
