Saw the second half of Hallam Eagles v Nottingham. Hallam won by about 40-0.
Coventry Dragons 64 Chargers 4
Birmingham 28 Telford 30
New Ravens 28 Bears A 24
Northampton beat Leicester at both 1st and 2nd teams but I don't know the scores.
Looks like we should change places with Derby!!!
Coventry Dragons A 18 Derby City 58
Typical of Sheffield Eagles: create a contrived 'club' that bleeds players from the only community club in the entire city and plays on the doorstep of one of the few (only?) other functioning community clubs within their catchment area.
Other than Sheffield Eagles RLFC, what benefit are the Hallam Eagles to the game of rugby league?
If Sheffield have lads needing game time, why not send them down to Hillsborough Hawks or North Derbyshire Chargers? I'm sure they'd appreciate the support.
Relationships between pro clubs and their neighbours in the community game ought to be symbiotic.
