The two Aarons had crowd-cheering performances in this hard fought contest.Fats gets a subtle Dons neck tackle....not quite legal we would have thought The score line reflects the hard task faced by Haven in bottling up a big bulky Doncaster. As of old the high tackles came into play, but Haven would not be intimidated. After a first half waiting game as each side tested their opponents, Summers used sheer power to burst through several Don defenders for the first blood. Nanyn easily converted straight under the sticks, but mysteriously Summers was sin binned seconds after his touch down. Leroy Joe continues in top form and created the chance for Wes Wilson to bring it to 10-0 at half-time.

The second fastest winger in RL, Craig Calvert broke from cover inside Haven's half to outrace the Dons to make it 14-0. The game then stalled for ten minutes until Lester found a way through to supply to Carl Rudd who touched down (18-0)

Nanyn converted this. Doncaster got a consolation try in the last five minutes.

Man of the Match was judged to be Carl Rudd. The gate was a sunny 1945.
