EAGLES 18 - 28 BATLEY
Eagles had to settle for a bonus point as they lost to Batley Bulldogs for the first time since 2010.

In a thrilling game the Bulldogs always kept their nose in front with Scott Leatherbarrow taking advantage of the short Owlerton pitch to kick three penalties.

Two tries from Menzie Yere in the second half took the Eagles close but they were always chasing the game.

The Eagles – who gave a debut to new signing Etu Uaisele – went behind early after two tries in the space of three minutes from winger Wayne Reittie and centre Ben Heaton with Leatherbarrow converting the second.
