Dominic Brambani couldn’t have had a better warm up for Sheffield Eagles crunch game with Featherstone Rovers.

He produced a classic display of the half-back’s devious arts in the win at North Wales Crusaders – but knows he has to do it all again. Brambani ran the show, having a hand in all of the Eagles 10 tries in the 56-6 win – the team’s best in the league this season.

“You could say it’s the turning point but we just have to keep improving,” said Brambani. “We took positives from the second half of the game at Castleford and wanted to build on that and I think we did that against Crusaders.”

Third in the Championship Featherstone – who parted company with coach John Bastian this week following back-to-back defeats by Leigh - will be a major test. Brambani must also adjust to playing on the tight pitch at Owlerton Stadium on Sunday, kick-off 2pm.

He said: “I won’t deny it; it’s tough (at Owlerton) but we adapt our game to play on the pitch. We have to adapt.”
