Game Preview: Steel Bowl 2016

It’s that time of year again, the Sheffield Sabres face the Hallam Warriors in front of a sell-out crowd at Goodwin this Sunday at 1 o’clock. After a long season it’s now time for the Steel Bowl, Varsity is a fierce rivalry match which both teams will be desperate to win.
The Sabres had a season with plenty of ups and downs, they made the Division 1A playoffs but lost a close game in the quarter finals after a long trip to Glasgow. The Warriors had a tough debut season in the Premier North, they were relegated after losing every game in a winless streak which stretches eight games. However, as the Sabres know themselves the Premier North is a difficult league to compete in, and they will not give too much substance to the Warrior’s record.
Expect plenty of big hits, tackles and blocks as adrenaline levels run high in a game which the bragging rights of the city are at stake.
