Error prone Win against Lakers
Whitehaven 22 - Doncaster Lakes 12
August 6 2006


 Takes three men to get Neil down!





Clammy wet weather generated plenty of dropped balls and fluffed passes for both sides in this fairly slender home win. Trindall enjoyed a more forceful game and opened the scoring. Rudd converted. But within ten minutes Leaf replied for the Dons and the scoreline of 6-6 reflected the lack of game breaking plans from either side.
Leroy Joe and Craig Calvert did their classic one-two with a well placed kick to corner for the winger to catch and touch down. Rudd converted from wide to leave the half-time score 12-6.

In the second half Leafa threw away an open way through after Neil Baines made one of his successful bulldozer break throughs.

Rudd kicked a penalty to help the home side put some space between the sides. The Haven stalwarts of Fatialofa and Leroy Joe then threw the Dons defences aside to give Calvert a clear run through to make if 18-6. Rudd again kicked brilliantly to convert as he did after David Seeds took the game to the Kells End and generated a penalty.
