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
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.
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.
