JACK Ely bagged two tries as the Dons eased to a comfortable Northern Rail Cup win over London.

Hooker Ely pounced from close range twice in the space of five minutes after the break to help Doncaster record their first competitive win of the season.

Chris Spurr was on the end of a flowing move in the seventh minute to put the home side ahead before Dave Arnot levelled the scores with the Skolars’ first real foray forward.

But tries from Liam Crawley and Scott Spaven, converted by Spaven and Stewart Sanderson respectively, gave the Dons a 16-4 lead at half time.

Doncaster continued to dominate possession, and territory, after the restart and Ely made his mark by powering over the line on 52 and 56 minutes.

Kyle Kesik added a sixth try midway through the second period when he spotted a gap and crossed from close range, with Sanderson adding his third conversion of the game to complete the scoring.
