Craig Calvert doubt for Whitehaven clash with Featherstone
Last updated at 12:21, Saturday, 26 July 2014
Whitehaven are sweating on whether 200-try hero Craig Calvert will be available as they prepare to entertain second-placed Featherstone Rovers at the Recre tomorrow (3pm ko).
Calvert will face a late fitness test but Haven chief Barry Richardson is confident that the club has cover, should Calvert not make it.
“Craig was keen to play last week when he was carrying a knock. He has a great attitude and wants to be out there again tomorrow,” said Richardson.
“But if he doesn’t pass the fitness test, we are confident we have cover.
“Jordan Burns was outstanding earlier in the season and he’s waiting for another opportunity.”
Haven are currently ninth in the Championship, the final ‘safety’ place, but they will be looking to turn over Featherstone whose form has been rather unpredictable of late.
Richardson added: “It’s a huge game with only six league matches to go. There are a lot of teams in the mix and one win could take any team up to fifth or sixth place depending on other results.
“Everyone knows the importance of every game now and we want to finish as high in the Championship as we can.
“We’re looking for a very good performance and then we’ll go from there.”
