Massive game for Barrow tonight at home to the men from the Shay as they look to close in on second place in the table.

While Halifax will see tonight as a true test of their credentials, as a win would not only confirm the league double over the Raiders after a convincing victory earlier in the season at the Shay, but it would also hand them advantage of claiming second spot in the league and with it
the luxurious trip in play-off Rugby League to Post Office Road to face Featerstone.

This fixture is also a repeat of last seasons Grand Final, with Barrow edging out the West Yorkshire blue and whites at the Halliwell Jones.

So expect a classic and battle royal encounter from the Cumbrian peninsula tonight as Craven Park looks set to welcome it's biggest crowd of the season.

Halifax by four for mine smile.gif

It's going to be very tough for both sides tonight, with Catic, Luisi and Rooney being the danger men for Barrow.

Failure to contain them will see the sometimes fragile Halifax defence being severely tested this evening.

No Holroyd for Halifax but Black, Branighan and Penkywicz all play.

We should have a decent attendance tonight , however it will be 500 down on what we would have expected if the game wasne switched, Fax wont bring anywhere near their usual following due to this and you can not blame them.

Corker still expected if the right Fax team show up.

I'm only going by what my friends at the game have told me.

Everyone isn't happy about Ronnie Laughton being the referee biggrin.gif

Ronnie Laughton blows time on and from the kick-off Halifax go for the 40/20 and get it after 20 seconds.

Amazing start to the game.

Barrow look all at sea tonight, Halifax not much better with both sides dropping the ball and taking the wrong option, although it must be said that Halifax are well worth the six point lead.

Barrow Raiders 0-16 Halifax RLFC after 25:00 minutes.

Try: Jon Goddard (2)

Halifax are cutting the Raiders to shreds out wide, too much open space left by the poor Barrow defence.
