FEATHERSTONE ROVERS 28 - 40 EAGLES

A Kyle Briggs hat-trick led Sheffield Eagles to a fifth consecutive victory at high-flying Featherstone Rovers.

Rovers occupy second spot in the Championship but were behind from the moment Briggs crossed for his first try after 11 minutes.

The Eagles signed Briggs from Featherstone mid-season, and coach Mark Aston was delighted to see the stand-off run riot on his old stomping ground.

He said: “Kyle is a champion and we’re lucky to have him.

“He’s got that bit of class and composure; for him to come here and score three tries on a ground where he has had so many great years is special for him.

“He has been great for us and a huge influence on our form at the back end of the season.”
