Beattie pens fresh Haven deal


Whitehaven have re-signed Australian loose forward Andrew Beattie on a one-year deal as they look to build a squad to challenge in Championship 1 next season.

Beattie, who proved to be a solid performer for the West Cumbrian outfit in 2011, has previously had spells with Barrow and Workington.

The Australian forward signed for Whitehaven before the start of the 2011 season after joining from local rivals Workington.
