Leeds crowd-puller
Lee Kiddie tries to get through the Rhino defences

February 9th 2003
Rhinos had their expected win in the Cup.

46-6 full time. But Whitehaven were not overawed by the occasion and got the first points on the board catching Gary Connolly behind his own line in the opening minutes. Refreshing cash boost for the Whitehaven coffers from their share of the Leeds attendance.A high tackle on Phil Sherwen produced the opening score, a comfortable penalty for Darren Holt - but the visitors were then made to pay for a series of penalties.Burrow scored Leeds' opening try. Wayne McDonald charged over after more indiscipline relieved the Leeds line and after 19 minutes Chris McKenna marked his debut with a try from close range after a pass from Diskin.David Fatialofa added power to the Whitehaven line and his pass gave Graeme Morton the chance to score in the 25th minute to reduce the deficit to 18-6.

But Sinfield scored just before the break and after the turn around it was all one way traffic.

Chorley win was Emphatic
Chorley 2-28 Haven
A good win for the Haven ,that was more emphatic than the scoreline suggests.

Chorley scored first with a penalty , but Haven replied quickly witha Spencer Miller try to put us back infront and we never looked like losing the advantage from there .
Both David Seeds and Aaron Lester could have scored first half touchdowns but were stopped inches short .We could have been 12 points ahead at the half but had to settle for 6-2

After the break there was never any doubt about the outcome as we scored further tyrs through Lee Kiddie (2) David Seeds and Paul Oneill with Darren Holt kicking 3 more goals .

A good all round team performance based on solid defence . One ot two minor injuries ,notably Leroy, but nothing serious and everyone should be fit for the big one at Leeds next Sunday
