Haven 31 (10-6) 12 Batley
Howard's first half touchdown

A crowd of 1,430 enjoyed a sunny afternoon in which Haven were always the dominant part of the equation. The half-time score should have shown more for the home side's steady domination. Leroy Joe opened the scoring and saw his try converted by Holt. Then the Big Fella Howard Hill made Haven's second. Lester had a try disallowed for a double movement. Just seconds before the half-time hooter Batley had one of their rare flashes of inspiration as three Haven defenders let Mark Sibson sprint half the length of the pitch.Haven were always in the visitor's half of the pitch but seemed unable to capitalise.They intitially had to make do with a penalty from Holt and drop goal from Joe until Batley cracked Steve Woods is a try scoring dynamo at the moment and he took a high kick just under the Kells End sticks to make it 17-6. Holt converted and soon after Jacko stormed over . Holt again converted. Campbell got the next which with the conversion gave the home side their finale. Batley's no 15 got a last minutes consolation which was converted. Man of the Match was Darren Holt.
