These guys deserve our support. Every week is like Rourke's Drift trying to get bodies on the park. As things stand without those guys, led off the pitch by Carl and on it by Shacks we wouldn't have a club. Yhey all run their blood to water and never give up. I am proud to be a supporter.
.

Well said marra. Scholars next week let’s get as many down as possible

TBH, they were by far the better team in the second half, (no criticism there we were struggling for bodies), BUT being 'better' isn't enough when you are faced with grit, determination, spirit, collectively and a never say die spirit. PLUS a topping of positive thinking and skill at the final act (goal kicking).

Town were obviously encouraged to come out and rough us up a bit in the first half, (by their coach), and since it didn't work, then he must carry full responsibility for their defeat, because they looked a very useful outfit throwing the ball out in the second.


Well done haven, great result, but a clear lesson for town...….the game isn't won until the other team is have accepted defeat...and twice this season against town, ….haven's warriors have shown they don't give way until the very end.

Highlight of the game was Leon and James Newton celebrating when Town went 10 points clear, Newton jumping on the Town dugout to dance in front of the Haven directors!!
Newton was he playing marra lol

Town were far the better team in the second half through atrocious decisions by the officials.  Until Shacks was binned for nothing we were in complete control.

The ref claimed it was a "Crusher Tackle"

Simply evening things up.....he was that sort of referee....pretty incompetent but even handed with it. TBH too, I've never seen a linesman come onto the field so often to report things.

Not too sure he had anything to even up.  Olstrom should have been off, Abram was high tackled in the act of scoring early on and nothing was given.  Penky pushes Dion nothing, Dion pushes back penalty.  3 key decisions against us in the first half.  No sin bin for the shoulder charge on Phillips start of second half either.

Budsy took out in the air, Shacks tackled without the ball which gave them the try under the sticks

Forgot about that one. Also on their first try the tackle before they scored they were held up over the line, but weren't made to go baxk ten..

that was a great game and one which we threw away and won back again credit to the lads for that all this crap off town saying they should have won well they had a very good second half but we done the damage first half and had we not got the injuries and player sinbinned the lead would have been more for us imagine what we will do when we click and get to play for 80 mins that’s a frieghtening thought

Have to say that Stuart’s kick in the last min took nerves vision and class and he nailed on a tea could not have been more perfect take into account conditions the wind was all over the place and at first I thought what the hell is he doing but just shows the experience he brings
