Eagles player/head coach Fabulous Flournoy said: “I’m very delighted. They are probably one of the most dangerous teams in our league at the moment because they are capable of beating anybody.
“Coming in off the trophy victory we were on an emotional high and it was difficult trying to set a tempo in practice.”

Flournoy could not hide his delight at that score, he said: “That is a good result for us, it is difficult to not say it.
