Sheffield Eagles progressed to the last eight of the Tetley's Challenge Cup after claiming a 28-12 victory over Halifax at Don Valley Stadium.

The Eagles, who famously won the Cup at Wembley in 1998, raced into an early lead and were never really threatened by their opponents in the all-Championship tie.

Tries from full-back Quentin Laulu-Togagae and centre Tom Armstrong and a goal from Dominic Brambani gave the Eagles a 10-0 lead in the first half.

Halifax centre Steve Tyrer pulled two points back with a penalty on the stroke of the interval to give the visitors a glimmer of hope heading into the second half.

But there was no way back after Laulu-Togagae went over for his second score 12 minutes after the restart.

Halifax's Rob Worrincy grabbed a try on the hour and Callum Casey also scored but Sheffield added further tries through Scott Turner and Menzie Yere, with Brambani kicking his fourth goal.
