WHITEHAVEN 24-22 EAGLES
Eagles came agonisingly close to snatching a vital win at Whitehaven.

Two tries from centre Menie Yere to bring his points total for the club to 500 had given the Eagles a lead but they slipped behind on the stroke of half-time.

In the final 40 minutes they struggled to take control until a late surge narrowed the margin to two points but time ran out.

Coach Mark Aston kept his pledge to shake up the Eagles after the home defeat to Leigh with young forwards Alex Palmer and Jack Blagbrough plus Cory Aston coming in with Gareth Owen starting at hooker.
