A very small part.  In fact, I don't know anybody who's not coming because there's no promotion.

 

No money, no time, not clever enough to understand the rules (speak to my mum on this - she's an education) - yes, plenty of those.

there many factors why fans don't watch the eagles. When winning promotion in 1989 we lost owlerton and had to play games in many areas . The four games we played in Sheffield that first year in the division one then were all well supported. Don valley was never ideal although we did get a few decent crowds though most were away fans. After winning the cup in 1998 we should have done a lot better that season in the league but faded while new fans came and went. Then came the dreaded merger what a disaster that put some fans off going again . The defeat to thornhill in challenge cup was also the last straw for some fans. The poor years in national league two didn't help. NO local bbc radio coverage for eagles and Doncaster either is a shame hard to believe bbc Sheffield cant put on a sunday sports program instead we get Asian network. The club is rising again but the lack of promotion is still an issue . How would any clubs fans feel having been through the mill like the eagles, look at other clubs who have had similar experiences clubs like Oldham , Keighley and swinton all had problems and all three have seen support plummet.

In the final he did it once, for the opening try. I don't recall him doing it in other Sheffield-Wigan matches.

That was, as Kear points out in his book and Aston is fond of saying, exactly how they'd planned their first attacking set of six in Wigan's half. Amazing that it worked, and so early in the game, too.

He's shorter than me.  Jason Robinson's only little.
