Whitehaven's Jamie Rooney hits 3,000-point milestone

Whitehaven's ex-England international Jamie Rooney reached the 3,000-point landmark in the pro game yesterday – with a helping hand from half-back partner Carl Rudd.

Regular kicker Rudd generously stepped aside for two conversions in the 42-20 win over visitors Oldham, to enable Rooney to score the four points needed to hit the hugely-impressive milestone, in his 333rd game since his 1998 Featherstone debut.

“It was great that Carl gave him those two close kicks to get him over the line,” coach Don Gailer said. “That was a really good effort from a team-mate.

“The whole thing is about team spirit and acting as a group. It has been there all year.

“There have been rumours from outside the camp about rifts between players but inside it we know we’ve been strong from day one. They all enjoy each other’s company. It’s probably me being angry from time to time that they don’t enjoy. We have the right mind-set to do some good. To bounce back from the agony of defeat last week and play like that was a gutsy effort.”

Haven have won five of their seven games since Rooney joined, losing only to pacesetters Barrow and last week going down by two points at Workington.



What do you think of rail services in Cumbria?

Good. But there is always room for improvement

Not good: There needs to be much more investment

I rarely travel by rail
