Championship One: North Wales Crusaders close on title

North Wales Crusaders won 20-14 at London Skolars to close in on the Championship One title.

Victory in their final league game of the season on 1 September at home to South Wales Scorpions will see them overtake Oldham to clinch the title - and with it automatic promotion to the Championship next season.

Scorpions will travel to the Racecourse with a place in the play-offs just within their reach, although they must beat their Welsh rivals and hope Oxford lose at home to the Skolars.
