But he admitted: “We’re going to have a look at our work around the end of sets because they (Leigh) scored a couple of tries from those situations and it’s something we’d worked on.

“But I’m also proud of how the boys performed against opponents who have been full-time for a long time.”

Looking forward to Eagles’ next clash against Leigh, Aston added: “We can come back here with no pressure. I think we can be a bit better. If we are, and we show the same committment, I’m a believer.”
