Whitehaven hand trial to Salford prop Matthew Haggerty

Whitehaven 2011

Championship One side Whitehaven have handed Salford City Reds prop forward Matthew Haggerty a four-game trial.

Haggerty, 20, is yet to force his way into the Reds first-team set-up but has been at the Willows on reserve-grade terms since 2008.

Salford appointed Matt Parish as head coach on Thursday after Shaun McRae stepped down from the post.

Haven, who were docked 10 points at the beginning of the season, are now fourth with eight wins in 11 games.
