Full Time Report

Sheffield beat Whitehaven

Third-placed Sheffield tightened their grip on a crucial top-four spot with a hard-fought 26-16 victory over spirited Whitehaven in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Whitehaven, 11th in the table, trailed 16-4 at the break at Castle Park but fought back to level with two Scott McAvoy tries before touchdowns from Scott Turner and Misi Taulapapa - his second of the match - settled Eagles nerves.

Quentin Laulu-Togagae and three-goal Kyle Briggs also crossed for the South Yorkshire side while Whitehaven's other try came from Craig Calvert.
