You couldnt be more wrong Mac 1.
Haven had until 2010 a strong and competitive Scholarship set-up . At the end of 2010 the RFL set down  minimum standards that would have to be followed before clubs could participate in Scholarships and Under 18 Academy , the financial implications were such that it would be almost impossible for clubs outside of SL  to meet . Thus Haven and most other Championship , with the exception of Featherstone , no longer run scholarships .

I would suggest that the Formation of  Cumbria Storm, which is a RFL backed and funded initiative  , is maybe just the RFL admitting that they maybe made the wrong decision in 2010 ?
