Castleford 36 (26-0) 8 Haven
Grand Final Oct 9 2005 (The day to forget!)

Chairman Des Byrne leads Haven out at the 2005 Grand Final


Castleford took control for most of first half with Haven first half nerves failing to calm before the turn around.

Penalties started the blitz and then Leroy Joe was sin-binned for a high tackle on Davis.

Then first half tries for the Tigers from Huby, Crouch, Blanch and Man of the Match Brad Davis.

This time there was no second half come back. More Tiger tries from Davis and Haughey.

Our double century scorer David Seeds got the first of Haven's only tires. He also fed to Craig Calvert for Whitehaven's second. Only consolation... no need to visit Brunton Park and plans for new stand at the Recre mean we will be ready in 2006.
