Eye on the Ball with Alan Irving

Hoping for an Easter delight

LET’S be kind – it was just a reality check. Mind you hopes were certainly high that Haven would be celebrating a Championship One double over Rochdale rather than on the receiving end of a 49-18 Hornets sting. Rochdale convincingly turned the tables on their opening defeat at The Recre.

Is Super League just a pipe dream?

WIDNES seemed a shoo-in for Super League. And so it proved. As the debate raged over who should take the ticket to ride – Widnes, Barrow or Halifax – another spectre loomed large: what to do about poor old Cumbria.

Tane in the zone

I WAS starting to think the old master was getting just a little bit too long in the tooth. Happily, it looks as though I was wrong.

Is ‘graveyard’ division killing crowds?

IS West Cumbria’s pubic falling out of love with professional rugby league? I don’t think so although many more enthusiasts are con-tent to sit at home watching than going to games.

Seeds needs an iron fist in a velvet glove

IF anyone thought David Seeds was going to be ‘one of the boys’ as Whitehaven’s new head coach then they couldn’t have been more mistaken.

Age old debate: Union or League?

CHRIS Ashton’s spectacular conversion to the 15-a-side code following in Jason Robinson’s footsteps, Kyle Eastmond’s impending departure, and the All Blacks rise of Sonny Bill Williams, has raised the age old argument: What’s best: union or league?

Devil is in the detail

THE devil is often in the detail. The “devil” in the Rugby Football League’s plan to expand the Co-operative Championship is that any clubs keen to merge can do so subject to RFL blessing.

Money talks in both codes

IT had all the hallmarks of a French farce. No sooner had Andreas Bauer made his debt for Whitehaven – a pretty impressive one, too – than he’s off across the Channel to play (temporarily) for the Pia Donkeys.

Things begin to take shape for long-awaited sports stadium

GOOD news for Haven fans, along with supporters of the next-door soccer club, is that the go ahead for the proposed Pow Beck sports stadium seems virtually a stone’s throw away.

Take the game by scruff of the neck

THE Recreation Ground continues to buzz. The Ike Southward Memorial Trophy defeat in no way dilutes the new club’s optimism and anticipated renaissance in 2011.

IT wasn’t the best day at the office but by the same token it was a first day at the office for this new Whitehaven rugby league side.

Old enemies become deadly rivals once more

LOCAL derby games could well be restored to something like their former glories as Whitehaven and Workington Town bid to restore their own fortunes in a race for promotion to the Co-operative Championship proper.

Can Stan help to prop up Haven?

SHOUT down the pit shaft and a budding prop forward will come up. That was the old maxim at Whitehaven. And with so many good front rowers hewn from working the coal face there seemed to be a grain of truth in it.

What odds on a double West Cumbrian promotion?

THE late, great Ike Southward would appreciate the scenario. After Boxing Day’s eagerly awaited clash of the old enemies to honour the memory of Cumberland’s finest ever winger – surely a future RL Hall of Fame nominee – Whitehaven and Workington will battle it out in a Northern Rail Cup pipe-opener on February 6. Both will be played on the Recreation Ground.
