Probably. You never known which Sheffield team will turn up, and whether they'll play to the game plan they're given (they didn't last week v Widnes).

FIngers crossed for a good game - heading up to Sheffield later to take in the game.

See you later if you're in the bar after. I'm on interchange duty.

It's a special event for the Armed Forces today in honour of ex-Eagle Liam Brentley who was seriously injured in the line of duty.

Also, this is good:

Eagles will make their game against Leigh Centurions one to remember for young visiting fan William Barlow.

The six-year-old will be presented to both teams before the kick-off as a thank you for his gift of boots and kit to the Kits2Kids charity set up by Eagles player Menzie Yere and backed by the club.

Sports fans have been asked to send Yere their old shirts, boots and surplus kit, which he plans to ship out to his native Papua New Guineafor distribution to local players.

Launched four months ago as Kits for Kumuls, the appeal has received donations of sports gear from across the UK, Europe and Australia.

Chris Noble, MBE, an Eagles director who is co-ordinating the appeal, said: About six weeks ago we received a parcel from William Barlow who is a Leigh Centurions supporter. William had sent his shirts and boots for us to pass on to the children of Papua New Guinea who are less fortunate than himself and a letter of support from him.

William is attending the game at Bramall Lane with his grandparents and will be presented to the players of both teams.

Congratulations and the thanks of us all go to William a true rugby league fan and an example to us all.

Fans and clubs can pledge their support and find out how to send shirts and kit by going to www.kits2kids.com. Cash donations towards shipping costs are also welcome.

Looks a fine ground Bramhall Lane on TV, if only there was some fans in that stadium?

Worthy of SL.

Just finished watching this and I must say both sides deserve some praise for giving us an entertaining game in the awful playing conditions.

I went to the game and when you are in the stadium, the atmosphere is excellent and it feels quite busy. It's surprising when they show on tv how empty it looks!

A very entertaining game and there was a real family feel to the bar afterwards with all the players in attendance. Its how sport should be.

Well done Eagles. Lets hope they keep playing at Bramall Lane and are allowed to build a decent fanbase.
errr.........is it scaramanga?

I can't help thinking that with unfettered promotion, the crowd would be much higher

They are potentially a big club

I seriously doubt it. Most new fans who you are trying to attract neither know nor care about P+R. They would be far more likely to turn up if Sheffield were in SuperLeague simply because Leeds, Wigan, Saints, Hull etc. are much bigger draws, and not just for the extra away supporters.

I would guess that soccer fans in Sheffield know all about P&R

Face it 1200 diehards is about the bare bones of what you get with no P&R

They would be more likely to turn out in the Championship if they had the prospect of facing Leeds, Wigan, Saints and Hull.
