A tough half-time team talk by coach Mark Aston set Sheffield Eagles on their way to a historic second successive Grand Final victory.

The Eagles produced a great second-half fightback to beat Batley Bulldogs 19-12 and become the first team ever to retain the title. Aston said there was no panic when the Eagles went in at half-time 12-0 down.

“At half-time, we had a few choice words but we were calm,” he said.
