Play-offs here we come!

Haven 68 (30-6) 12 Dewsbury
After some initial slow defensive reactions Haven soon meshed together to enjoy a game that became a try feast.
Hardy opened the scores for the visitors as he exploited a late offloaded pass. But play master Leroy Joe soon responded by a well placed kick for Seeds to touchdown. Kirkbride, who had his magic kicking boots on throughout, converted this as he did the majority of the home tries.
Fats then made a great offload for Lester to go over. Chambers who had a great game then created Lester's second. The skipper then set up the next with a skilled offload for Broadbent…who himself got into the swing of play by a dummy move that handed the ball on to Joe to complete.
Chambers scored first after the turn round with his own clear and powerful drive through. Hill and few others briefly relaxed their defences and the Rams got a consolation try. But Hill quickly made up for his error with a nice dummy and touchdown.
The Rams became somewhat narked at this stage and players were lucky not to be sent off for some wild punches in anger.
Haven and the Kells End were in full flow by now and Hill, Seeds , Broadbent, Lester and Gary Smith steamed across the line as the visitors crumbled completely.
Haven: Broadbent, Woods, Seeds, Wes Wilson, John Lebbon, Leroy Joe, Steve Kirkbride, Marc Jacson, Lester, Fatailofa, G.Chambers, Hill, G.Purdham, Sice, Spence Miller and T. Cunningham.

Man of the Match; Aaron Lester, although Marra felt Chambers deserved full marks for a tireless performance. Lebbon was also a spirited addition.
