Colchester Garrison 0 London Skolars 54

25th January 2012

Skolars warmed up for the Capital Challenge with a 54-0 win against a determined army side from the Colchester garrison.

Skolars scored 11 tries with Ade Adebisi scoring a hat-trick on his return to the side after knee surgery last August.

The army side held out for the first quarter of an hour and it took a break from 40 metres out from Andy McLean, finished off by Ade Adebisi to unlock the defence.

The highlight of the first half was a run his own 40 metre line from John Paxton, throwing a superb dummy to open up the closing defence.

The second half saw a similar pattern. The army side pushed Skolars close to the line, but the defence held out to keep a clean sheet. McLean intercepted to race to the line, his try adding to two conversions. Skolars again used four different goal kickers on a blustery day.

Tries: Adebisi (14,35,79), Thomas (22), Price (24), Small (29), Paxton (37). Juma (50), Junor (58), McLean (65), Smith (72)

Goals: Skee 1/4, McLean 2/4, Thorman 1/1, Rousseau 1/2
