Whitehaven chairman Des Byrne
"We were totally outclassed. We've got to have ambition, but we can't get to finals and play like that.
"I feel desperately sorry for the Haven fans who spent their money and came down to watch it.
"We were just not good enough, and we have to do something about that.
Are we happy and content to be part-timers? I'm certainly not. I want to be in the Super League."
