Skolars Danny Burke set to make debut for Malta Knights

When the Malta Knights play the Denmark Lions on Saturday in Copenhagen London Skolars Danny Burke will be making his debut for the Maltese. This is the second leg of the 2012 Dove Men+Care International Series with Malta having won the first game 24-12 in June.

Ironically the Danes are coached by former Skolars player Nigel Kitching and the Skolars donated a playing kit to Denmark last year, which they wore in an international against Sweden.

Danny has had a difficult year with injuries, which in fact ruled him out of the first game in June. He’s now fit and showed good form playing for Skolars A’s recently when they had a resounding victory in the Harry Jepson Trophy Final against Northampton Demons.

Danny will be joined in the Malta team by Bradford Bull Jarrod Sammut.

London Skolars Louis Robinson has been turning out for the Canada Rugby League team against the United States Tomahawks in the Colonial Cup.

The first game was played in Toronto, in front of 4,600 spectators and the Tomahawks won by 28-24 with Louis scoring two kicks for Canada. The second game, played in Westport, Connecticut was also won by Tomahawks, this time by 36-14. Louis had an impressive game however scoring a try and three kicks.

Canada have one more game to play, against te England Lions in Toronto on the 6th October.

London Skolars are looking for new outside investors to help them fund their ambitious plans to challenge for a Championship place, grow commercial revenues and also fund their stadium plans.

The club has been extremely well managed from a financial perspective and has always operated in a prudent and organic fashion.

Hector McNeil – non-exec CEO was recently quoted as saying investors would be surprised by the amounts of money needed to invest in the club to make a difference. He compared it to the same as paying for an annual hospitality season ticket at Arsenal!

The club is open to the more significant investors taking up a board position particularly where the investor has significant experience which can add value to the club. There is also the potential that any investment can avail of efficient tax incentives such as the Enterprise Initiative Scheme.

London Skolars’ Lamont Bryan has been named as one of the 13 players in the Championship 1 All-Stars dream team. The dual registered Broncos player has recently signed a two year deal with Co-operative Championship Grand Finalists Featherstone Rovers. They and fellow Championship One finalists Barrow Raiders lead the way in this season’s Championships All Star selections, with each club contributing four players to their respective competition’s selection.

Featherstone are represented by Championship Player of the Year nominees Liam Finn and Andy Kain, who occupy the half-back positions, centre Sam Smeaton and second row Matty Dale.

Leigh Centurions and Batley Bulldogs have three players each in the All Star selection, with Leigh centre Matt Gardner joining second row Craig Briscoe and loose forward Sam Hopkins. Batley prop Alex Walmsley joins the Bulldogs’ pairing of Gareth Potts and Alex Brown, who both earn their place on the wings.  Last season’s beaten finalists Sheffield Eagles complete the Championship squad through Quentin Lalu Togagae, who occupies the full-back position. Hooker Sean Penkywicz is one of two Halifax players named in the team of the year alongside prop Sam Barlow.

In Championship One, Barrow Raiders, who upset Doncaster to secure a place in next week’s final, are represented by full-back Andy Ballard and scrum-half Liam Campbell, who joins back row pairing of Liam Harrison and Daniel Toal.

Championship One League Leaders Doncaster have three players in the line-up, with winger Stuart Sanderson and centre Lee Waterman joining experienced stand-off Paul Cooke, who earns his call-up after an impressive debut season with the South Yorkshire club.

West Cumbrian rivals Workington Town and Whitehaven contribute five players to the team of the year. Workington’s Jamie Thackray is in the front row at prop alongside hooker Graeme Mattinson, while centre Jason Mossop is the third Town representative. Whitehaven are represented by winger Craig Calvert and prop Paul Cullnean.

Bryan is the only player from a side that didn’t gain promotion to be included in the line-up. There was no place for Dylan Skee despite being the top goal scorer and points scorer in Championship 1, as well as 12 tries in the season which sees him still being in the top 10 points scorers across the 3 professional leagues.
