Four tries Chrimes the hero as Sheffield Eagles head to Challenge Cup last 16 UK News

Matty Chrimes ran in four tries in the clash with Anthony Thackeray acting as chief designer.

But Aston were more concerned with the defensive side of the Eagles’ exit ahead of the sixth-round draw, which takes place at 6.45pm on Monday.

“To score 50 points in straight wins and qualify for the next round of the cup is exactly what the doctor ordered,” Aston said.

Eagles head coach Mark Aston.

“But we left 30 points, and some of them were very disappointing.

“Some people have done well and some have not.

“There are nice things, but it’s the inconsistency inside of it. We are now entering a place where we know where the team is going to be and what needs to happen in the next few weeks.

“We can’t just knock it down. Championship teams are really going to hurt you. There is a bit of work to be done, no doubt.

The availability of club icon Quentin Laulu-Togaga’e on loan from Keighley Cougars will give Aston food for thought after Chimes’ four-star exit.

“Matty has been outstanding the last three or four weeks he’s been playing,” he said. “It’s getting hard, isn’t it?”

“As coaches we have to make the decisions and make the right choices. There are no guarantees for Q, he came into the club and he has to impress.

“There are a few headaches, but there are a few people who will be really disappointed.”
