The Birmingham breakaway young males were fathered by the old Avoca/Giraffe males, and the 6 BDM young males the youngest Giraffe male

There are terrytorial for around a year already and dominant over Western pride. Now also took posesion over big arena around Tanda Tula. Moreover soon they might add as much as 3 more prides into their possesion (including Myambulas which with subadult females 9 females strong so soon potentially a mega pride) so Skorros are by no mean nomadic. Moreover they will indeed have as much as 4 prides that would be incredibly impressive achivment for a duo.

That is their doing that they stick together and the Nharhu's doing that they were separated and the Skorro's doing that they perfectly exploited Nharhu's weakness. Very often clashes of the coalition comes to such actions is it is usseles saying like MAjingilanes ousted Salatis just because they found single Salati on his own or similarly Matshapiris tookover from Matimbas only because they cought Matimbas separated. Skorros took on Nharhus while Nharhus were coalition of 2 and deserve all credit for victory over coalition of 2.
Still early to predict what they will do. At the moment they're trying to took-over the River pride and only time will tell what could happens in the area. Hopefully, they will had success

I think Myambulas and Sark breakaway will be first in line and easy for takeover as they will be in search for dominant males to mate with, while River pride might be more tricky and time consuming as the pride will avoid Skorro males.

That's pretty accurate. Mayambula and Sark prides will be the first prides that these boys will took-over

Newcomers in central region of Timbavati - Introducing the two Skorro males in all his glory. At the beginning of August the Skorro males made a brief visit to the central parts of Timbavati, and after an altercation with the dominant males of the area, which resulted with the death of the healthy Nharhu male and the disappearance of the limping Nharhu male. With the competition already eliminated, the Skorro males are trying to took-over pride after pride. Last night on a decisive move, the skorro males intercepted the River pride and made contact. The eerie-nights silence was shattered by the growls and roars of the three females as they fought to protect the cubs and the Nharhu males legacy. After an intense couple of minutes, the night fell back into its dark abyss and only morning would bring the knowledge as to what extent this clash would have on the future of our pride. There is a confirmation that one of the remaining females has been severely injured ("Fatally?,,) too soon to tell). Whilst the other two females  managed to escape unscathed, are fleeing north with their cubs who miraculously survived what undoubtedly would’ve been the longest night of their lives. As the River pride seek asylum in territories beyond their pride boundaries, the future of our beloved Lions hangs in the balance... Today, the non-skittish Skorro males was found mating with one of the Mayambula females, A pride that a couple of weeks ago was mating with the Nharhu males. Only time will tell if the Skorro males will stick in the area and will left offspring behond in the current lion prides...

Skorokoro is a pretty impressive male if you ignore his limp, he might be able to bluff the Skorros into not wanting to have to deal with him if they don't have to. A bit like YBM and the Ross males situation.

That would end up very ugly... Remining Nharhu male would be wise to abandon the arena.

Question is can he survive on his own? If not, then its not wise, yet better try to stay with RP and maybe together abandon the area or keep low profile somewhere in the corner, especially if Skorro's will be busy with Myambula pride and might navigate west because of that.
