SHEFFIELD Tigers admit they were outplayed in a 19-0 reverse at Birmingham & Solihull.,

It was their first ever trip there - and they will be in no hurry to go back. On Tigers’ website, Nigel Daykin posted: “This was a disappointing performance, albeit against an improved Birmingham team needing points to climb clear of the relegation places.”

The Brummies are 13th in a 16 team National League 2 North table, and Tigers’ loss now sees them in seventh.

TEAM: O’Donnell (Ross - Simmons), Hannon (Walker), Chivers, Joel, Barnes, White, Argyle, Pearce, Drage, Outram, Wallace, Tahraoui (Buchanan – Bird), Broadley, Holmes, Swatkins

Sheffield had an emphatic 50-12 win over Darlington in North 1 East. And Wheatley Hills beat Northern 35-17.
