Eagles to battle Raidettes


Sheffield Eagles Women will make the journey to Oulton Raidettes’ Raider Park on Sunday in the Betfred Women’s Championship.

The Eagles have hit a purple patch with three consecutive league wins, their last being a tense affair against Hull FC.

Danie Green notched twice, with Ellie Tiffin also getting on to the scoresheet, as the Eagles came away from The Allam Sports Centre with a 10-14 triumph.

They will expect a tough challenge this weekend as Oulton won the Championship Grand Final against Salford Red Devils last year but refused promotion to Super League 2 due to future stadium requirements.

It will be a great acid test for the Eagles to see where they’re at in their first Championship season following promotion from League 1 last term. 

The Eagles’ 1-6-7-9 spine of Tiffin, Parker, Palmer and Wood will prove dangerous for the Raidettes while the likes of Pete Lendon and Beth Arnold will continue to lead the forward pack.
