Newcastle Eagles produced a wonderful second half display yesterday at the Vertu Motors Arena to take a crucial home victory over Essex Rebels. The win gives them real momentum as they push towards the end of season and clinching a play-off place.

The margin of victory was also important as the Eagles lost earlier in the season down at Essex by eight points. The 69 – 56 margin in favour of Newcastle means that they claim the head-to-head on points aggregate over the Rebels which could be decisive in the final reckonings.
