Brown leads way as Eagles slam Rams

Have your say

championship: Sheffield Eagles went second in the Championship as they routed Dewsbury Rams 42-4 with the assistance of 18 points from Simon Brown.

The hosts were ahead inside five minutes when Menzie Yere burst through powerfully on the left.

He doubled the lead on the quarter-hour with an almost identical try and Steve Brown again added the extras.

It was 18-0 in the 28th minute when Joe Hirst found a gap from five metres out to slide in between the posts.

The try of the match followed in the 34th minute. Quentin Laulu-Togagae made a superb break from his own line down the left wing before offloading to Yere. He passed to Dom Brambini who in turn handed it to Nev Morrison who completed a wonderful team effort.

A stunning half for Sheffield was complete when Misi Taulapapa went over on the right wing.

It did not get any better for the Rams in the second half as Brown made it 36-0. Brown’s dinked kick just evaded Yere but it bounced off two Dewsbury defenders and back to Brown who had a simple finish.

The Rams did get on the scoreboard in the 60th minute when Ayden Faal crossed but Patrick Walker’s kick hit a post to sum up a miserable night.

The scoring was not over for Sheffield as Andrew Henderson scored their seventh try three minutes later.

Dewsbury’s James Craven slid in for a try at the finish but it was scant consolation for the Rams.
