Capital gain sees Dons go four unbeaten

THE Dons will be confident of stretching their winning run to five matches when they welcome Wokington to the Keepmoat on Sunday.

Tony Miller’s side continued their strong start to the campaign with a 42-22 win at London Skolars on Sunday to climb to second place in the early Championship One table with their second 40-plus points total in a row.

But the match was marred by a mass brawl close to full time.

It led to Skolars’ coach Joe Mbu and Dons’ winger Ashley Williams, who was on the bench but not in the playing squad, being sent off and put on report.

The incident started following a clash between Dean Colton and former Dons winger Ade Adebisi in front of the dugouts.

Players, substitutes and coaching staff became involved in what turned into a melee and the incident is to be investigated by the Rugby League.

Victory seemed unlikely for the Dons when the Skolars raced ahead with tries from Luke May, Jason Hart and Gareth Honor in the first 15 minutes.

Jack Ely’s converted try saw Doncaster hit back for a 16-6 scoreline.

But that was as good as it got for the hosts as the Dons got their act together and turned around 24-16 ahead.

Michael Butterfield, Ryan Steen and Scott Spaven all touched down before the break.

On loan forward Chris Green grabbed a brace of tries in the second half, both converted by half back Spaven who kicked 14 points in total.

Stewart Sanderson crossed to complete Doncaster’s rout while Austen Aggrey grabbed a late consolation for the Skolars.

* The Dons face a tough ask if they are to progress further in the Challenge Cup after being drawn at home to Super League side Wakefield Wildcats in the fourth round on May 8.

Sunday’s league clash with Wokington kicks off at 3pm.
