Sheffield Eagles’ Dominic Brambani has taken his boss’s goal kicking record but doesn’t intend to stop there.

Four successful kicks in the win over Hunslet took the half-back to 149 goals beating the record set by coach Mark Aston in the 1988-89 season.

Brambani had already edged ahead in points scored - Aston’s total included 13 drop goals - and has taken his haul to 317.

“We have a few more games to come and it gives me a little bit of satisfaction, it’s nice to break records,” said Brambani. “Sheffield is a club that’s close to my heart now and it’s nice to get a record here.”

Aston said his record had stood for quite a time and records are there to be broken.

“It’s nice for people to be in the history books for the club,” he added. “Dom has had a really good year with the boot and he’s consistent and kicks the ball sweet. I’m delighted for him. Dom’s got the record because he’s so consistent.”

Brambani hopes to add a few more points when the Eagles travel to Featherstone Rovers tomorrow night. A win would give the Eagles the Championship leader’s shield with one game to play.
