ROCKETS team manager John Sampford has paid tribute to the beaten Sheffield Tigers after Rye House's Premier League win.

Just four points in front with only four races left, the Rockets finally put paid to some spirited resistance from the visitors.
Afterwards, team supremo Sampford was full of praise for the travelling Tigers. He said: “To be fair to them, they gave us a brilliant match.
