Haven 50(10-6)10 Hunslet
For a side that has so many players off injured Haven have started to repay Coach Cullen's efforts. In rain and mud they shook off a slow first half to come strong and finish with a 50-10 scoreline. Garry Purdham was welcome back and instrumental in feeding to Aaron Lester for a try.

While Barrow almost fell to lowly Gateshead, Haven keep racking up wins. Tries came from Leroy Joe, Hill (2)Lester (3), O'Neil (2), Mark Wallace. O'Neil was goal kicker making the conversions.
Everyone agrees Haven were a damp squib in the first half, apart from a try from Leroy Joe. But once they gauged the depth of the mud they got the points on the board.
Once again it was that man Howard Hill who provided the important turn-around try. O'Neil converted before the half-way hooter and a wake up talk from Coach Cullen.
Hill again started the rout in the second half. Thereafter Haven dominated attack as well as defence with tries from Man of the Match Lester (3)and O'Neill (2).
Haven: O'Neil, Wignall, Seeds, Hill, Wallace, Kiddie, Joe, Cox, Lester, Vaughan, Smith, Devlin, Miller, Kirkbride, R. and G. Purdham, Sherwen.
