Dons slip up
Doncaster lost ground on the leading three at the top of the Kingstone Press Championship table after slipping to a 26-22 defeat to reigning champions Sheffield Eagles in the South Yorkshire derby at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Despite the sin-binning of David Scott and player-coach Paul Cooke, Doncaster led 22-12 after 38 minutes thanks to tries from Craig Robinson, Nev Morrison and Steve Snitch, plus five goals from Stewart Sanderson.
New signing Etu Uaisele and Matt Garside scored first-half tries as the Eagles led 12-10 at the break and Quentin Laulu-Togagae, Menzie Yere and Scott Turner all touched down in the final quarter as the visitors finished the stronger side.
