Second Half Wobble
but a well earned win
Haven 38- 24 Rochdale
April 17 2006
The first half score of
24-0 is deceptive as Rochdale were a big, often fast moving side
that could just have given Haven a problem after Marc Jackson
was red carded for a blatant attack on a man down. Luckily the
rest of the Haven squad earned their spurs with Rudd kicking
to perfection, including converting one of his own tries. For
many he was M of the Match, but the official M of M was the equally
deserving John Duffy. He like Leroy Joe seemed to be everywhere
all the time both in attack and defence. Once again Sice proved
he could slice through any defence like a knife through butter.
One of the truly
inspiring points in this exciting fixture (Gate of 2,000 plus)
came when in the closing minutes of the first half play maker
Duffy passed to Rob Jackson who moved it on to Eilbeck who quick
fire passed it back up the line to a flying Howard Hill. As well
as Jackson's stupid fisting the macth also saw a Haven player
headbutted and a mini-brawl in the closing minutes of the first
half. Yellow cards were dished out to Rob Jackson and Richard
Vorbulis over this spat.
