Sheffield Tigers slumped to a 60-35 defeat at Redcar last night as they again showed how much they miss the injured Richard Hall.
After Thursday’s humbling home loss, the Tigers went to Teeside looking for revenge but again they fell short, and their lack of lower end scoring power hindered any chance they had of grabbing a consolation point.
They were never in the tie, the Bears taking control from the off and they went 10 points up after just four heats. Even the brilliant Simon Stead failed to halt the Redcar juggernaut, the Tigers skipper managing just paid 11 points from a possible 21.
The real highlight for Sheffield was Ricky Wells, who is really proving his worth with a strong of excellent away scores. His 16 point haul was the only real resistance from the away side.
Redcar; (Davey 12+4, Kus 12+2, Dyer 12, Summers 10+2, Ostergaard 10, Wilkinson 4+2, RR for Skidmore)
Sheffield; (Wells 16, Stead 10+1, Albin 4+1, Haines 4, Knight 1, Koppe 0, RR for Hall.)
