With the injuries we have and limited numbers, well done to the 17 today on bagging the 2 points. Same again next week lads

Made hard work of that but considering our injury list and some players playing with injuries well done to all.

16 nil up we let them back init. Thought at one point we might throw it away. Skolars aren't that bad a side. Just need to throw the ball about a bit. Too much 1 man rugby

Roll on next week but I fear Thunder will be a much stiffer task.

Just gotta get a decent team out next week, otherwise Thunder could burst our bubble.

Great effort today by a very much patched up team...…..we certainly know how to win games when the odds are stacked against us.

If the rumour about one fans favourite are true then there’s going to be a few dogs getting kicked in Wukinton.

Great effort today from 1-17, we made hard work of it but showed our character to grind out the win.

I thought Howarth had a good game, not only with the kicks to the corner for two of the tries but for once looked solid in defence when in other games he had been flapping like a windmill. Nice to see him organising the team round the pitch too.

Hope we have avoided any further injuries

Suspect Abram carried an injury today......time out on field at one point tending to his kicking foot (with sock off) and missed kicks he would normally 'back heal' over.

This Skolars team ran York close and this was not an easy game.

Thought the crowd was decent today too, must have been 100 up in Haven fans over the Keighley game.

But that was the main reason given when asking people why they don’t come anymore. Anyway not getting into this any further, need to look forward and create something positive
