Sheffield Eagles fell short of a fourth consecutive Championship Grand Final appearance after suffering a 21-12 defeat at Featherstone Rovers.

A sluggish start cost Mark Aston’s side dear, as they headed into the changing rooms at half time 21-0 behind. It was a valiant effort in the second period, but the Eagles boss admitted they left themselves too much to do.

Keepmoat Stadium, Saturday 21 September

Sheffield Eagles will fly the flag for South Yorkshire in the final stages of the Championship play-offs.

And on the evidence of yesterday’s resounding 58-24 win over Doncaster, it will take a good side to prevent Mark Aston’s men retaining the trophy they won against Batley.

Not that they were ever seriously tested by a Doncaster side which, on the day, looked but a shadow of the team which finished fourth in the table.
