Haven v Castleford
August 9 (7.30pm)

Haven were the real tigers who pulled Castleford's tail. The visitors could never relax as the Haven defence were superb and their pressure for an upset was constant.
Richard Fletcher had the first try of the match as Haven really sparked things off in front of over 3,000 at the Recre and many more at home on Sky. Rudd converted. Broadbent, who had a superb game almost came through but let slip a knock on. Ryan Clayton then somehow found a way through the unrelenting Haven defences.
Jackson should have scored but Danny Wilson ripped the ball out and the try was disallowed. Dixon and Baker then made sure Castleford went into the second half with a cushion.

In the second period our old friend Leafa was denied and Haven were never going to quit, After a video check newly arrived Baldwin did the business and got a try. Tensions were high and fans going wild as Haven started to stage a come back. Duffy and Calvert almost succeeded in their well known one-two but just failed. Sice and Marc Jackson added spice and punch but Haven were sadly denied their just deserts. Seeds was superb in attack and defence...ceryainly let Sky viewers see what a classy outfit Haven have become.
