Academy challenge returns

Skills contest returns on SAFSee.

The Academy Challenge is back on SAFSee!

Academy staff take on the under-18 squad in a skill challenge each week to determine an overall winner at the end of the season.

The staff took the bragging rights in the first series, coming back from a 5-1 deficit to seal a dramatic 6-5 overall win thanks to a last-gasp victory by Kevin Ball over Mikael Mandron.

The games have been changed slightly this year, with two challenges each week with a third tie-breaker if required.

Watch the first game of the first showdown now as skills coach Stuart Brightwell takes on first-year scholar Dylan McEvoy. The second part will follow tomorrow!
