The Sheffield Eagles Community department are committed to providing regular rugby league playing opportunities for school rugby league teams and ensuring that the opportunities are of the highest possible standard.

On Tuesday 13th November 4 secondary schools attended a Year 7 central venue league at the home of the Sheffield Eagles Don Valley Stadium. The four secondary schools that participated were All Saints, Forge Valley, Kind Edwards and Springs Academy.

Adam Hughes, Sheffield Eagles Community Manager, said ‘It was great to see how much the Y7 players have improved in such a short space of time.”

“From watching the games you would have thought that the lads had been playing full contact rugby league for a few years instead of just the few months they have actually been playing at school.”

Mitch Stringer, Sheffield Eagles first team player and community development officer, added, “It was great to see the lads playing under the floodlights on the pitch at Don Valley.”

“Hopefully it will give them a taste of where they can get to in the future and really wet their appetite to play rugby league.”
