Full Time Report

Whitehaven hold off late Sheffield charge to earn second win in a row

Whitehaven made it back-to-back Kingstone Press Championship victories with a hard-fought 26-24 success at Sheffield Eagles.

Rob Worrincy went over twice early on either side of Craig Calvert's try but the Whitehaven winger added his second to level the scores before Elliot Miller edged Haven 12-8 ahead just before half-time.

Scott McAvoy and Miller crossed to put the visitors in control but after Liam Carberry had cancelled out Michael Knowles' try, Worrincy completed his hat-trick and Mark Mexico scored four minutes from time to set up a nervy finish.
