Rough on the Roughyeds

Haven 32 (22-4) 16 Oldham
August 29 2004

HAVEN produced an inspired first-half display to ensure the game was as good as won at the break.(22-4)

Watched by over 2,000 fans Haven dominated throughout a slow, sometimes uninspiring game. Newcomer Ryan Tandy earned his spurs with two first half tries that got Waltzing Matilda playing over the tannoy. He was joined on the score sheet by Sam Obst and Aaron Lester in the first half. The second half saw no points on the board for some 15 minutes and some sloppy play as the summer rains made for slippery conditions. The second-half was a much closer affair, Oldham enjoying the greater share of possession, but they found the Haven defence solid. And Man of Match skipper Aaron Lester, stood out as much for his tremendous work in defence and attack.

Leroy Joe replied to an Oldham second-half try with a decisive break through. Nanyn kicked all bar one of the conversions. To cap the quiet second period Craig Calvert did another high speed sprint to grab a neat kicked to the corner punt from Walshy.

Scorers for Oldham were Martin McLaughlin, Lee Dunn and Dodd. Man of the Match was Aaron Lester...

Norman Lofthouse set off ahead of the starting gun to make sure he beat Lee Skelton in a charity dash across the Recre at the interval for Hospice at Home..
