Flop in last League Fixture

Sky TV cameras rolled Haven wilted. Just four days after a superb
contest against Widnes Haven lacked sparkle. Illness and injuries
Rudd broke through first in the 13th minute. The scrum-half kicked
through and followed up to touch down. Rudd added the extras
to put Haven 6-0 up, but a succession of penalties quickly put
them on the front foot. Soon after Ged Corcoran was in for a
try, Woodcocks conversion levelling matters. The Yorkshire
outfit went ahead when Steve Trindall tackled Tom Buckenham before
he collected the ball and Woodcock took the penalty. Haven appeared
still a force after Rudd goaled a penalty and then almost put
Scott Teare in for a try, only for Eagle's defence to deny the
prop. Sice also narrowly missed a try opportunity.

the second spell Gavin Brown, scored and Woodcock converted.
Derry Eilbeck then appeared to make a decisive break through,
touching down Joes chip, only for the video ref to rule
No Try. Sice desperate clearance under pressure saw Eagles centre
Damien Reid react, snatching a try. Woodcocks conversion
gave his side a 12-point cushion. David Fatialofa lifted Haven
with a great break from his own half, and on their next set,
the Kiwi was only just held up over the home sides line.
But it was Sheffield who were next on the scoreboard, Woodcock
making Haven pay for a high tackle with a penalty goal. The Cumbrians
fought back with Gary Broadbent touching down. Rudd converted
and Haven continued to press but the hosts had the last word,
winger Danny Mills crossing. Woodock missed the conversion attempt
after the final hooter - which meant Haven had secured
a bonus point.
