The start of the second was slow and sloppy but it was Connor Scott who opened the scoring pushing his way over the line whilst sporting some unusual footwear. Dons 24 – Skolars 6.

Doncaster veteran Kyle Kesik scored the only other try of the second half with ten minutes left on the clock to make it 32-6.

Jack Logan then scored one of the tries of the game when he ran the full length of the pitch to score putting on the afterburners near the posts to make it 38-6.
