After last weeks victory against Leeds at home, the Eagles were back on the road to face Leicester at Leicester Arena.
The Eagles got off to a slow start as the home side looked to take the first points after taking advantage of sluggish defence by the visitors, this would seem to be the case throughout the game. The Eagles responded, however it would be the home side who would string together some easy points after some poor turnovers as it finished 11-9.
The second quarter would be identical to the first, as the home side were able to score with ease as the Eagles found themselves in constant transition defence due to the turnovers. Some great off ball movement and moving of the ball meant the Eagles eased the deficit however the home side would be up by 4 at the half.
The third was the Eagles worst yet the highest scoring for both teams. It was a run of inconsistency that cost the Eagles as they lacked effort on defence allowing easy scores for Leicester. There would be 6+ possessions where the home side would not score due to the rotations, and great help defence but the home side would now be 10 points up.
The final quarter is where the Eagles would turn up the pressure as they reduced their deficit however Leicester would find it easy to stop the away side scoring due to their lack of spacing and ball movement and take advantage of poor transition defence. The game finished 57-47.
The Eagles are back on the road for the last time this season as they face Cheshire next week.
