Beattie impressed for Haven following his winter 2010 move from Workington

Australian centre Andrew Beattie has re-signed with Championship One side Whitehaven for the 2012 season.

Beattie, 30, scored three tries in 23 appearances for Haven last season following his winter switch from Cumbrian rivals Workington.

The Marras have also agreed new deals for Paul Doran, Scott McAvoy, Luke Issaka and Martyn Wilson this winter.

In addition St Helens' Ben Karalius, Warrington's Chris Fleming and London Skolars' Sam Gee have signed contracts.

Haven will be coached by former Queensland academy grade coach Don Gailer, following David Seeds' decision to step down at the end of the season.
