Sheffield boss Mark Aston insists his Grand Final-winning side will be ready for next Thursday’s televised Championship opener at the Shay, despite a total lack of pre-season action.

The Eagles, who edged out hot-favourites Featherstone to win last season’s showpiece, saw their one planned warm-up outing, in the south of France against Limoux, postponed.

That means the South Yorkshire side will go into their clash with Halifax - who have played three times - without a game under their belt, although Aston was unconcerned.
