Eastbourne sent Belle Vue packing on Saturday with an excellent performance which saw them run out 57-35 winners.

The Manchester club were without Matej Zagar and Craig Cook but guests Davey Watt and Ben Barker should have been reasonable replacements.

In fact, they hardly got a look in and the same can be said for the rest of the visitors; although we must give an honourable mention to Scott Nicholls.

In the A fixture, the Eagles need a last heat 5-1 to secure the three league points. This time around, the match was long over before the final heat began.
