Aston apologises to Eagles fans for slow start

Sheffield Eagles director of rugby Mark Aston has issued an apology to the club’s supporters following their slow start to 2016. 

With just three wins from their opening eight games, the Eagles currently sit 8th place in the Kingstone Press Championship despite turning full-time in the off-season in an attempt to push towards Super League

Director of rugby Aston has issued an apology to the supporters and believes new faces may be required to give the club the boost it needs to kickstart their season.

“I am almost lost for words. I must apologise to our fans who travelled to Dewsbury,” Aston told the club’s official website.

“They will be questioning what I am questioning, the heart. I questioned it at half time, I said before the game that the team that wants it the most, will win it and looking at that (the match performance), we didn’t want it enough.

“We are looking to bring some new faces in, if possible. There is no denying we are nowhere near whhere we need to be, which is evident by our league position. 

“Again, apologies to our fans, we value your support, we are working tirelessly to turn things around and need everyone backing us moving forward.”
