Big Problems to be Tackled

By Marra
Date: 17/12/2000

Promising bursts from Howard Hill and Aaron Lester failed to get that vital backing and finishing. There were less handling errors this time, but defensive weaknesses meant Leigh dominated Haven's end of the field.

Haven 8 - 30(2-10) Leigh

Grim faces from departing fans as Haven failed to gel again and let the visiting Centurions scurry all over the field.
Leigh had a warm up training session at Kells that morning...did Haven?
Only try for Haven came from Spencer Miller one of the yet again late substitutions by coach Cullen. Conversion and a goal from Paul O'Neill
"We need a scrum-half" was the plea from many Haven fans.
A glimpse of future potential was the spirit shown by Dean Vaughan, Spence Miller and Alan Bone when given their chance...a little late in the game.
The attendance figure of just over 1,000 showed the anticipated dip from the previous week.
The hardest Leigh player for the Haven defence to come to grips with was the greased lightening of Neil Turley.
