Sheffield Eagles 48-12 Dewsbury Rams


Sheffield Eagles carried on their good run of form with a 48-12 victory over Dewsbury Rams at the Beaumont Legal Stadium. Garry Lo scored four tries in a star-studded individual performance by the PNG winger.

It took 28 minutes for the first try of the contest courtesy of Menzie Yere but two more followed in quick succession as the Eagles raced into a 16-0 lead. Ben Blackmore and Lo both touched down for the hosts, who had Simon Brown to thank for two conversions. However, Dewsbury finished the half on the front foot and two tries cut the deficit to four points heading into the sheds. Aaron Brown and Brandon Douglas were the try-scorers for the Rams, who came into the match after a brilliant win over Batley Bulldogs on Good Friday.

However, 32 points without reply saw Sheffield wrap up a comfortable win. Greg Burns ducked past a wannabe tackler before crossing the whitewash from dummy-half as Sheffield restored their two score lead. Sam Scott latched on to a Brown grubber kick to further the hosts’ lead before Lo provided the finishing touch to a fine team try. Brown kicked a penalty to make the score 36-12 inside the final quarter. Lo scored his third and fourth tries to complete a successful evening for the winger, who is now the leading scorer in the Kingstone Press Championship.
