#3207765 NRL grand final

Posted by The Voodooguru on 04 October 2015 - 08:57 PM

That chip on your shoulder is more like a potato.

Too many RL supporters make utter fools out of themselves with their jealousy of the other code.


How ironic that you should call others foolish because they express an opinion.

Another season in the bag, and a big thanks to everyone who have put their time in to help the club for us spectators.

The BOD have again been fantastic, as have the coach, players, everyone who works away in the background on matchdays and for the club, supporters clubs, sponsors, etc etc etc.


Positives included:

The BOD doing the business again, bringing in new sponsors, and brought in new players including more quality local amateurs and overseas players.

When things didn't go to plan the signing of the one and only Jarrod Sammut who has been an absolute pleasure to see in a Town shirt.

Elliott coming back from a bad injury like he'd never been away.

Brett Carter waiting patiently for his chance to show what a great player he is.

Lots of the players re-signing for next season.

Making the semi finals of the play offs.

Oh and I nearly forgot - beating the Jambos 5 times this year and making it 6 times in a row to prove again we are the pride of Cumbria.

Try celebrations won't be forgotten either!



Injuries! Rooney, Matty, Fifita, Horton all hardly played because of injuries.

Wigans attitude to dual reg, it could have been so much better if Wigan had given a bit of respect to the agreement.

The scoreboard.



I must have missed loads as I'm half cut and I've done well the remember this much, feel free to add to the lists.

#3198441 End of season

Posted by The Voodooguru on 22 September 2015 - 07:34 PM

Player of the year for me has to be Shacks, he's played on in great form with knackered knees almost every game. If he'd been here longer Mr Sammut would have took it as the difference he's made has been unbelievable, closely followed by Brett Carter as his form in the super 8's has been awesome, it's just a pity Phil didn't trust him earlier in the season. Also gotta mention Elliott since he came back from  a potentially career ending injury too. But the season is 30 games long and for that reason Shacks is the man.


Highlights of the season has to be the Sammut swallow dive in front of the Kells end and the Sammut & Carter try celebrations against the Jam, rubbing it in at it's best!


Unluckiest has to be Latu & Kurt who couldn't have had worse luck with injuries after coming to the other side of the world. Gotta feel for them both.

#3198077 elliot miller?

Posted by The Voodooguru on 22 September 2015 - 08:40 AM

He's been with us a long time so will hopefully have the same affection for the club, his teammates, and us supporters as we do for him and sign a new deal.
But if he decides his future is elsewhere there ain't much that can be done. He will no doubt get everyone's thanks and best wishes as he's been fantastic for us.
BUT if he signs for the Jambo's his song will no doubt be changed to a more abusive version, and as Haven only have 2 songs he can't expect the same affection down the road.
Wait and see before we make any judgment on the lad as he hasn't officially committed one way or another yet, but it's only because we think so much of him that it's caused such a storm.

#3195308 Union world cup

Posted by The Voodooguru on 18 September 2015 - 08:21 AM

i will be watching a few games.i just dont like the way its branded the "rugby world cup" as if only one code exists.

Belive it or not the RFL had the rights to the "Rugby world cup" and let it lapse.
Says it all really.

I will try and watch it but every time I've tried in the past I've lost interest with the amount of time the ball is out of play. But there is an interest with the ex league players I suppose.

#3193013 Town destroy haven.

Posted by The Voodooguru on 13 September 2015 - 09:18 PM

I heard barrow was halving some players money for next year and some are quitting. Surely Brett has shown how good he is.

Most Haven fans are saying Elliott has already gone for the cash. A done deal. On one hand if it's true I can understand why financially if the money is that good, but on the other it's bemusing why he would turn his back on us after everything, and the state of Haven over the last few years. Like coming home and finding your dad with your wife! Sick to the pit of your stomach and not sure who to punch first.
But I'm sure if it is true we have a ready made replacement in Sam.
Don't do it Elliott!!

#3192345 Town V haven predictions

Posted by The Voodooguru on 12 September 2015 - 08:07 PM

I hope your'e right Donald and we are talking about Sammut saving our bacon for another 3 years!

Lets face it without talented players all teams would be in trouble, whether they are from Wigan, Widnes, Mars..........

#3187910 Signings for next season

Posted by The Voodooguru on 05 September 2015 - 12:40 PM

I'm sure Elliott won't hold anyone to ransom. The lad has to look after himself financially, but all Town fans would be gutted if he signed for the Jambo's. I can't see why he would want to sign for a club who has a different coach every 18-24 months with an erratic recruitment policy and a decent turnover of players.
Wait and see what happens.

The award for the biggest mess up of a free stadium refurbishment and hosting of a world cup?

#3182959 Monday

Posted by The Voodooguru on 26 August 2015 - 09:02 PM

to be fair keith i reckon whoever finishes 4th be it haven or town stand a great chance of winning it but at the end of the day its just a losers trophy if you know what i mean nut it would still be nice to win


Haven winning something? Are you on Bombers Lambrini?? ;)

#3178760 Super 8's marketing

Posted by The Voodooguru on 18 August 2015 - 07:08 PM

I think people will agree that the board is having a good go at marketing our home games. Kids for a quid, dual ticket offer, Facebook, Twitter and now banners appearing around town.
A great effort, I hope the rewards are a decent increase in the gate.

#3174660 gone awol

Posted by The Voodooguru on 11 August 2015 - 09:46 PM

But I will say

I asked for Sammut to be signed after week one of this season....

I also stated a local settled side was far better than DR ....

I ALSO STATED to stay up we needed to sign

Hulme / Sammut and stozak ....

Massive turn around for the club and it's good for us fans ... But this season is wasted after being so poor for so long when all we needed was 1 thing !!!

Do you have proof of such wild claims lol?

I think if we sign Greg Inglis and Billy Slater for next season we will score more tries than we did this season and finish in a higher league position, I know you all think I'm mad but I'm gonna stick my neck out on this one...

#3174119 Kicking game

Posted by The Voodooguru on 10 August 2015 - 09:26 PM

I have a cunning plan.
The club should put a finders fee request into the ECB because if we had never employed Ged Stokes, Ben would never have played for Cockermouth, Durham or England and therefore England wouldn't have won the ashes. So in short England won the ashes directly because of Workington Town.
We can then use this money to sign Jarrod ( ironically an Aussie) up for next year.
Genius even if I do say so myself!
