Haven 50 - Dewsbury
Dewsbury Celtic never troubled
the home side from the moment Leigh Smith marked his first gamed
since rejoing Haven with a try. The bigger challenge comes away
to Fetherstone next week.
A LARGELY uneventful game in
which Whitehaven did what they had to. Dewsbury never troubled
the home side from the moment Leigh Smith marked his first game
since rejoing Haven with a try.
Smith grabbed a hat-trick before the final hooter and there were
tries for Howard Hill, Mark Cox, Garry Purdham and Darren King.
The game was one for the die hards, with neither Whitehaven nor
Celtic doing anything to special and nothing of note happening
at all really. The home fans could have expected a comfortable
win and that was what they got, the Smith hat trick and the clean
sheet was a bonus, as was the encouraging displays from King,
Dean Burgess and Ryan Campbell.
For the record Marc Jackson was Man of the Match. Wesley Wilson,
Aaron Lester, Chris McKinney and Dean Vaughan all got a rest
this week, ready for the tough trip to Featherstone next week.
