Castleford assumed pole position in National League One after winning their
top-of-the-table clash 42-24 at home to Whitehaven - the Cumbrians' first
defeat of their campaign. Waine Pryce and Jon Hepworth scored two tries apiece as the Tigers made it seven successive victories.

Whitehaven leaked seven first-half tries, including three while substitute
forward Paul Davidson was in the sin bin for a series of high tackles. Steve Crouch, Michael Platt, Deon Bird and Tommy Haughey also crossed for
Castleford while Wes Wilson, David Fatialofa, Carl Sice and Aaron Lester
replied for the outclassed Cumbrians.

Cup Quarter Final

Gary Broadbent

Whitehaven RL progressed through to the semi finals of the Northern rail cup defeating Rochdale 28-22 . The Hornets were much tougher opponents than expected and pushed a below par Haven right to the final hooter . In the final analysis both teams scored four trys and Haven ahd to thank goal kicker Mick Nanyn whose 6 successful goal kicks saw Haven to a narrow but deserved win .(Apologies for slow match report-gremlins in the works!)
