It never rains but it pours and Workington Town suffered more frustration and disappointment on the road.
The game at Sheffield was delayed nearly two hours after the team coach was held up by a multi-vehicle smash on the A66.
The road was closed because of the serious crash near Great Musgrave and Town fans travelling to the game by coach were also held up.
When they did get through, the driver had to take his break and they finally arrived at the ground around half-time if the game had kicked-off on time.
Town had actually travelled with only three substitutes who were not all fully fit so it was probably no surprise that they went down 64-6.
Indeed after the journey they had, and the lack of a full squad, Town did particularly well to be only 22-6 in arrears at half-time.
Jordan Thomson scored the Workington try when he barged over from short range and Carl Forber put over the conversion. It came on 24 minutes and briefly cut the deficit to 16-6.
The Eagles only scored one further try in the first half but after the change round they took complete control as Town, with a lack of bench options, struggled to contain their hosts.
Sheffield finished with 12 tries, four of them from Anthony Thackray while Josh Guzdek kicked eight goals.
Town must now prepare for a Cumbrian derby next Sunday against Whitehaven at the Summer Bash in Leeds. It will be no consolation that Whitehaven also struggled with numbers against Leigh and three of their four substitutes would not have been selected if there had been anyone else.
