Doncaster 20, Whitehaven 30

Sunday July 31
Tries: Hill , Calvert, Penny(3)
Conversions: O'Neill (5)

Joel Penny was the hero of this encounter. He grabbed a hat-trick of tries to inspire Whitehaven to a crucial victory against the Dons.

Haven needed this win to erase the sour taste of their hammering at Fax.

Scoring first for Haven, Howard Hill forced his way over after latching on to a short pass from Carl Sice .

Paul O’Neill’s conversion put Haven in front – and their lead was never seriously threatened, despite Doncaster’s best efforts, for the rest of the match.

Hill, Summers and David Fatialofa held back the Doncaster pack.


Leroy Joe created the break that sent Craig Calvert sprinting over in the corner to give Haven a 12-4 interval lead.

Graham Holroyd and Lee Harland teamed up to give Doncaster a try.

But Penny would not be denied and kept finding ways through to score three tries.

To their credit Doncaster battled to the finish but the score was true to the worthy winners.
