Today is a very special day for the forum - it's 10 years old! Back on February 23rd 2005, I launched what was then the first official Whitehaven RLFC website, and along with it the forum.

The forum itself has changed a huge amount in that time, but 10 years on and it is still proving as popular as ever. Now no longer an official club forum, it has been my aim to provide a platform for Whitehaven RLFC fans, and fans from other clubs, to share their views and have their say. Some of you have been here since day 1, and I also have had the pleasure of meeting many of you personally.

To mark the anniversary, I'd like to ask the following question - What is your most memorable Whitehaven RLFC moment in the last 10 years? Also, if you have a particular forum moment/member that stands out, then please do share!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the mods and admins for their time and effort to keep things in order. A very special thanks to MrsHavenWarrior, who keeps a very close eye on things day to day and makes sure everyone follows the rules.

I hope you've enjoyed being part of the last 10 years, here's to the next 10 :tip:

Best moment was winning the league At home against cas infront of over 6,500 fans and celebrations afterwards

I am a relative newcomer and I enjoy the cut and thrust of some of the posts, especially the ones that get deleted ha ha. Yes I would endorse the big thanks to Mr.H.W. who just battles on and puts up [or not] with all our foibles. If we could turn the passion on the forum into £ notes we would be in Super League. Happy birthday forum.

10 years wow.   Well done John from a Town fan who has been with your forum since the first day, in fact I think I was number 14 on the list of members.    Over the years I have enjoyed a lot of banter with forum members, some get a bit over-heated but in the main I get on with most of them.

I don't have a particular Haven memory in the 10 years but I genuinely believe that the way the game has gone/is going both clubs need to see the other beating the other teams that are going to be jostling with us both in this league.  If we both can take points off them then it helps us both.

Here's to another 10 years John.

Mine has to be screaming that we were safe at Swinton after seeing the keighley result on Twitter, although being on the field celebrating after the play off victory in 05 is a very close second.

Best moment either Rochdale away 05, cas at home in play offs or beating leigh at home in 04 in the league. Mcnallys hat trick was memorable aswell infront of the sky cameras great to be there that day.
