Comprehensive win over Hunslet with Jordan Burns grabbing a hat-trick with Dion Aiye and Jesse Joe Parker bagging a brace apiece

Full time:  Haven 46 - Hunslet 10

What a performance, needed to win by 30ish and won by 36 despite a laughable refereeing display.

Well done Haven... it was a great match h to listen to.. best game of the season... and I'm on hols!!!
Hope you can put a few past Coventry and give York a run for their money too.
The other teams at the top have a difficult pair of games to finish...it's looking exciting.
Come on Haven!!

Thought we played some very attractive rugby today led round the park by a very influential performance by Stevie Roper that’s why I picked him for mom. I really thought hunslet would have put up a better fight but we battered them in the first half and made it easier in the second
Whitehaven RLFC The real pride of cumbria

Amazing win today. Best display of the season. At times had to soak up huge amounts of pressure especially first 15 of the 2nd but we held firm. Roper was outstanding but you couldn't fault any of the 17. Downside was why couldn't we play like this more often especially against Donny 2 weeks ago.

Were in 6th but a play off place is going to be difficult due to our inferior goal difference. Were level on pts with Oldham who have about 300pts better goal DF. Oldham are at home to Bradford and I cant see them winning that. We should beat the Coventry easily. Last game Oldham are away to Scholars and we need an upset. WE may need to go to York needing a win to secure a playoff play place. York may need a win to secure the league title.

Its going to go down to the wire but if we do need to beat York we have to play like we did today. Oldham nearly beat them. I would rest as many players as I could and play Sicey and Calvert. Looks like everything is going to come down to the last game of the season.
