Upper Clapton 24

The Scorpions started their league campaign with a fine win over a tough Upper Clapton team at the weekend.

The hosts could not pull away in the points stake as Clapton kept clawing their way back into the game.

Sean Murphy's boys started brightly, with Ossie Esterhuizen going over fairly early on a feat he repeated twice more throughout the match.

His central partner Ian Lyons scored the try of the match after some fine work from the forwards.

With the score at 27-24, the Scorpions absorbed some strong pressure and a penalty try, given when flanker Mal Flood was held back from scoring a certain try lead to some breathing space for the Scorpions.
