New signings at the Recreation Ground this week

New Coach


Whitehaven have appointed former Catalan Dragons reserve boss Steve Deakin as head coach on a two-year deal. More

Whitehaven stay up

Whitehaven started this game knowing that a win was a must, and that anything less would mean relegation. In the end they romped to an emphatic win over the Lions , but even then they had to rely on Keighley's by Featherstone to secure their Kingstone Press Championship status with a 44-18 win at Swinton. Scott McAvoy, Carl Foster, Jordan Burns, Jesse Joe Parker, Cain Southernwood, Lee Mitchell and James Newton scored tries for the Cumbrians and Australian half-back Brett Seymour kicked eight goals.

Tries from Martin Ainscough, Kevin Penny and Richie Hawkyard could not prevent Swinton ending the season with a 10th straight defeat. So it will be Championship rugby next season for the Haven and a fresh set of challenges, but for the moment Haven can savour this final day win in front of over 250 ecstatic travelling fans.

Whitehaven took the honours in an entertaining Kingstone Press Championship clash as they edged out Dewsbury Rams 40-34.(13/7/2014)

Haven played well in patches but then allowed an enthusiastic Rams team back into the game several times in the 80 minutes. In the end they just about deserved the win with Craig Calvert scoring a well taken hat-trick, while Tom Carr and Shaun Ainscough scored two tries each for Whitehaven,

Anthony Thackeray, Shane Grady, Karl Pryce, Sam Wood, Scott Hale, and Tommy Gallagher all crossed for Dewsbury.

Haven are now only two points behind Dewsbury in seventh place , as a log jam of 5 teams in contetion for the last 4 promotion slots .The pressure in now on and every game assumes a must win status

Haven had five trialists in their 24-man squad, saw Thunder lead at the interval.

But Haven fielded a stronger, more dynamic side after the break, spearheaded by Cain Southernwood and James Newton, and they dominated the second-half.

Their tries came from the impressive Tom Carr, Paul Cullnean and Southernwood, before Scott McAvoy made sure of the victory with a last-minute converted touch down.
