Concentration holding Eagles back, says Thackeray

Sheffield Eagles half back Anthony Thackeray believes tightening up his side’s concentration levels is only a minor tweak needed to see them hoisted into the top five of the Championship.

The Eagles are largely new look team in 2019 and sit just four points outside the play off places following narrow defeats to other play off hopefuls Leigh and York in recent weeks.

With a 1895 Cup semi-final with Batley on the horizon and the top five still a distinct possibility, the former Featherstone man was confident the team only needed to change minor things to get to where they want to be this season.

“I don’t think there is much between the sides, maybe just a lapse in concentration here and there, and that’s something we’ll try and get to the bottom of,” he said.

“We started this season with 14 new signings, so I think considering where we have come from, we have gone well. We have slipped up on a couple of occasions, which if we hadn’t we would have been right up there.
