  3. Sheffield Eagles take on Toulouse Olympique, this Sunday (27 June), kick off 3pm at The Mobile Rocket Stadium, home of Wakefield Trinity.

    The match is being played at Wakefield due to pre-planned pitch renovations at the Keepmoat Stadium.

    Its all a bit of a shame for him personally and for the club. A fans favourite and someone to lift spirits in the squad with his infectious personality. 

    But he's only himself to blame. A victim of his own stupidity at the time and then throughout the proceedings by how he conducted his 'defence and also a victim of the World we currently live in.

    I do have some sympathy but I'm really sticking my head above the parapet to even whisper such an opinion these days.

    How is he a victim?

    Would you prefer to live in a world where his remarks are acceptable?

    Would you be comfortable to express your opinion to Rob's face?

    I agree that it was disgusting. I was embarrassed listening to some of the chants and booing the injured player was unacceptable.

    However. It was a small group of about 10 lads. Whilst that would be a majority of the support for Sheffield, it's not for Rovers 😉

     

    So why have you not reported the group to Stewards or your Club if you found it disgusting, there may only be 10 of them but your Club will be judged by their action?

    With talks of a possible September restart, but then news of area's seeing surges in covid19 in area's like Leicester, Bradford, Blackburn, Luton, Rochdale, Kirklees (and we all know why) 

    I hope you have shared your knowledge with Boris, he needs all the help he can get

    I agree an uncontested scrum is a bit of waste.

    Why not just take a tap instead.

    The skill of the hooker has changed.

    We won the 83 cup final partly due to having the best hooker and pack on the field.

    "It's about risk mitigation, the studies show that 12 bodies closely bound for a period is a greater risk than 3 or 4 bodies in a tackle, it is not about "hazarding a guess".

    Contested scrums in the other code have resulted in career ending and life threatening injuries.

    Scrums in League are a device to collect the "big lads" in one place and leave gaps for a running game.

    I would rather see play the balls replace scrums and have rugby to watch than not have rugby to watch"

    An acknowledgement would be polite!

    Kadgaokooko (spelling?) were number 1 in 1983, do you really want to go there?

      Fairness for all really.

      I am also of the opinion that rugby league clubs deserve a bit of financial help.

      However,it does seem unfair on the 'away' supporters - if that is who the target audience is.

       If home supporters want a discount - it should be available in season ticket form,only.

       If supporters cannot pay for a season ticket in one large up-front lump,then the club should arrange for a payment scheme.

       I am not aware of other sports now reducing prior to a game - then increasing on match day.

       I was of the opinion soccer stopped it,to prevent hooliganism.

       I don't think the other code do it - and I don't think cinema and theatre do it.

      With the financial hit the country and the sport has taken, maybe things will change.

        It must work for Sheffield Eagles so no doubt it will continue.

    The Eagles website makes advance tickets available to all, please check it out prior to your next visit.

    Why should home supporters only have the option of buying a season ticket to obtain a discount, "Fairness for all really"?

    Some home supporter may have family or work commitments which means a season ticket is not value for money.

    Frankly, I don't care what other sports may, or may not, offer, I care deeply about the Eagles maximising their gate and staying in business. The evidence is that the current structure works.

    If it's not safe to have a scrum well it's certainly not safe to be on the field in any capacity. If it's deemed safe to play at all then it must be safe in all aspects.

      I agree with you.But,sadly,this club isn't the only one that does it.

      Bradford Bulls were worse.

       Super League clubs provide tickets for away games,and the club taking up the option,and sell tickets to away games,retain a percentage.

       Lower league clubs don't do that.I think the target audience from the match day - full price charge - is the away club follower.

       Please retain your enthusiasm for the sport, and maybe attend a club where they don't employ the method.

    To be clear, you don't want a discount for buying your ticket in advance?

    Football seem to work and I'm sure  local derbies you wouldn't need local transport 

    It worked from 2000/2002 season so why wouldn't it work now? I can't remember the winter been bad this time round February and March was worse with the weather 

    It takes me 1.1/2 hours to walk to Don Valley, I've done it!

    Who do you suggest the Eagles, Whitehaven and London play, we don't all live down the road from our local rivals?

  14. Corey Makelim is heading home at the end of the month.

    "Speaking of his departure, Corey said; “My partner and I had to make the difficult decision to go home due to a number of reason that were out of our control and also feeling home sick through this time."

    The full story is on the Eagles website

     

  15. Interesting to be reminded of the continuity within the club.

    Four sons of team members have played for the current Eagles.

    Four player have been, or are, part of the coaching set-up.

    I don't know enough details about other clubs to compare but that looks like a pretty high ratio to me.

  16. The draw in full was as follows;

    Wigan Warriors v. Warrington Wolves

    York City Knights v. Castleford Tigers

    Widnes Vikings v. Catalans Dragons

    Wakefield Trinity v. Featherstone Rovers

    Newcastle Thunder v. Toronto Wolfpack

    Leeds Rhinos v. Hull KR

    Salford Red Devils v. St Helens

    Sheffield Eagles v. Hull FC

    Games are scheduled to be played on the 4th and 5th April and games will be selected for televising.
