Northern Rail Cup Elimination Round

Sheffield Eagles v Barrow Raiders

Don Valley Stadium

19th May 2013 – 3.00pm


Match Stats:         Raiders woke up after 18 mins and being 24 - 0 down started playing some decent rugby. Unfortunately after giving Eagles a penalty or a "spear" tackle on 44 mins Raiders started losing shape and Eagles regrouped and Yere went in for an easy try after some woe-ful attempts at tackling. The same pattern appeared after 53 mins when Raiders were penalised and Eagles went in for try no. 6.  2 mins later, another penalty to Eagles and another try. Raiders heads went down until the 65th min when Raiders were awarded a penalty for a sloppy ankle hold by Eagles. A minute later after a good kick and catch Raiders Lowe had scored. 3 mins later one of the few scrums awarded, for a knock on and Raiders made ground and scored again. Silly play by Raiders gave Eagles another penalty for a high tackle  and the momentum swung away from raiders and eagles went in for 2 more tries. It was a good job the hooter sounded shortly after this as another penalty had been awarded against Raiders for ball stealing and that was the end of the embarrassment for Raiders.
