Dominant in final preseason
Eagles flying high in preseason
Eagles final preseason was a repeat of last season final with Cramlington Rockets coming down to Benfield. The game started with some strong running by the Rockets but Wallsend quickly asserted themselves and picked up where they left off 2 weeks ago against West Bowling. Strong running and some quick plays to the wings racked up the tries in the first half and without relinquishing the ball the eagles made it to half time 52-0 up.
A change of attacking approach in the second half to encourage some of the passing we have been working on in preseason meant the pace slowed but Wallsend still remained dominant throughout and set the standards for the season to our closest rivals. The final score 72-12 with tries from Tony 4, Ryan 4, Josh 3, Tyler 1 and Isaac 1 with James and Josh both taking kicking duties to add the extras.
A big thank you to Cramlington for the game and keep battling right until the final whistle.
A clean sweep of preseason wins for the eagles will surely put us in good shape going into the season
