Sheffield Eagles 22-47 Featherstone Rovers

Jack Ormondroyd is on dual-registration with Leeds Rhinos and Featherstone Rovers.


Sheffield Eagles’ poor run of form continued when Featherstone Rovers beat Mark Aston’s men 47-22 at the Beaumont Legal Stadium.

Sheffield’s new recruit Reece Dean made an instant impact with a try after two minutes but Featherstone hit back with a couple of four pointers through Jason Walton and Andy Bostock. Duane Straugheir levelled matters with a converted score before Walton, Ash Handley and Chris Ulugia all crossed for the Rovers to give them a 26-12 half-time lead.

After the restart, Elliot Minchella cut the deficit with the first try of the second period but a penalty goal for Featherstone soon cut the momentum. Anthony Thackeray bagged a brace in the space of ten minutes, either side of another penalty, which brought Jon Sharp’s men to the 40 point mark. Garry Lo scored on 62 minutes for Sheffield’s fourth of the evening but a drop goal from Thackeray made it a four score game with just over 10 to go. Luke Briscoe notched the final try of the game as Featherstone got back to winning ways in style.
