It's all academic for Blackpool Panthers this weekend as they travel to the capital to take on the London Skolars in a bottom of the table battle in division two of the LHF Healthplan National League.

The Panthers and the Skolars have just a win apiece from their opening eight games of the season and have a rare opportunity to climb the table.

Panthers went down 44-8 at home to Swinton on Friday night in what will be their final game at Bloomfield Road for the time being.

They will move to Fylde RUFC for their games against Keighley Cougars on July 18 and Gateshead Thunder on July 25 games, while the playing surface at Blackpool FC is overhauled.
