Oh dear, it's now the refs fault they lost apparently!!!    One eyed Ronnie Laughton he is being called.    I think over the whole game Laughton made several errors against both teams equally but some of the penalties were just plain stupid by players.    How long does it take for both sets of players to realise that if you don't get back the 10 you are going to get penalised?     There must have been half a dozen penalties in the first 15 minutes all for being offisde.


Yes, and apparently Karl Olstrum should have been sent off 3 times, all for headbutting offences ! Oh, and Jamie Acton was scared of Cameron and ran away to avoid getting laid out by him :-)

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

They let us win so they're not overloaded with games , aren't distracted from the league and aren't low on petrol after a big cup game ...It was a master plan and worked out strategy Eisenhower woulda been proud of.

it must be really bad for the haven fans to take , 7 losses on the trot against a team who they think is inferior to theirs,and before they start ,no we are not world beaters ,far from it ,but we are a gutsy team who play for each other.


COME ON YOU TOWN!!

There's 12 top flight sides left and Sheffield , Fax and York . So great shot at getting a good game ... Salford , Widnes , Wakefield or London at home would be great , but any SL day out is memorable . Surely God can't be so cruel to give us one of them lesser league 3 away !

Nice touch all the Town team holding the seven fingers up at the Bells end at the end of the game. What a pity there wasn't any jam fans in there to witness it. We certainly all appreciated it though....nice one lads. :D

I think Laughton had a decent game today, he was not only supported by his two touch judges, Doran helped out on all game telling him where he had wrong :-) He never stopped talking too him!!

Rugby League must be a great game to survive the fools at the RFL who run it.

As well as 3 rapid headbutts, Karl was also trying to incite the crowd.

Don't know about anyone else, but I think he's turning into this teams brad hepi, the player all opposing fans love to hate.

Doran certainly saved Jamie Rooney from either going to the sin-bin or a red card for dissent as Laughton was going for a card out of his back pocket until Doran ran up to him and had a word with him.    Laughton then just had a word with Rooney.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Why would he want to incite Town fans cos' there wasn't many Haven fans there, was there?      ;)  ;)

I listened to the Radio Cumbria commentary while watching the match and the two commentators were chalk and cheese. John Walsh's commentary was good  and  unbiased.  As for Mr (biased) Cox he is a disgrace he makes out he has got better eyesight than the match officials even though he is up in the stand and nowhere near play. He continually calls the match officials and in doing so is questioning their integrity. Mr Cox is an embarrassment to Whitehaven RL2010 but most of all to Radio Cumbria.        

I (barrow fan) was listning in ont wireless and i was cringing every time he talked, he is a bit of an embarrassment really like you say, its a shame they dont have a webcam on his face when he is commentating, those last few seconds would ov been a priceless picture........ :lol: 

 

good look next round am routing 4 yas!
