ASSISTANT coach Steve Hazzelby has called for more of the same from Sedgley Park as they look for another victory against a promotion rival on Saturday.

The Tigers secured a 29-19 triumph at fourth-placed Sheffield Tigers last weekend and now face second-placed Fylde on the road as they look for a bonus-point victory that would put them level on points with their hosts.

And after a decent performance across the Pennines last time out, Hazzelby has belief Sedgley can make it back-to-back away wins this weekend.

Summing up the Sheffield success, he told the club’s website: “What another great team performance following on from the wonderful efforts of the previous week.

“On Saturday we were away to Sheffield Tigers – a team that had won six of their last seven games.

“They were lying fourth in the league, just one place behind us, so we knew this would be a hard, difficult game against an in-form team.

“Conditions on the day were difficult with a freezing fog covering a soft, muddy pitch.

“Sheffield started strongly and scored a converted try within the first six minutes but we hit back five minutes later with a lovely try from full-back Leon Simpson, converted by Oli Glasse.

“We were playing some solid, controlled rugby with a strong scrum and accurate line-out that provided a firm platform for our back line.

“After some powerful, driving play by the forwards we got our second try through our dynamic flanker, Will Lees, on the 20-minute mark.

“Sheffield got their second converted try six minutes later but a penalty by centre Glasse just before the break saw us go into half time with a 15-14 lead.

“We started the second half well with a great converted try for hooker Matt Gallagher after a fabulous catch-and-drive from the forwards.

“Ten minutes later we got our fourth converted try and the winning bonus point through our inspirational captain Bob Birtwell.

“Sheffield did get their third try after 68 minutes but the day belonged to us with a well-deserved win.

“This was an immense effort from the whole squad for the whole 80 minutes against a team who had only lost twice at home so far this season.

“It is always hard to pick out individual players because everyone gave their all but special mention goes to our 20-year-old second-row Connor James, who put in a man-of-the-match performance from start to finish.

“This Saturday we are away to old rivals Fylde in a top-of-the-table clash.

This should be a great game, with second playing third in the league and everyone is looking forward to this game to see who is the top team in Lancashire.”
