Our pack was fantastic - Ramsden

Ramsden told BBC Radio York: "I thought the win was on.

"The lads played very well. The effort and desire commitment throughout was fantastic, particularly in defence."

He added: "We've played Sheffield twice this year and we were looking at the conditions before the game and if ever there was a chance to beat the Eagles it was going to be today in pretty heavy conditions.

"They were forcing errors.

"The pack was fantastic and they didn't really break us down the middle."
