Barrow coach Darren Holt has been diagnosed with cancer and has temporarily stood down from the coach's role while he battles it. Best wishes to Holty, not only a great RL man but a throughly decent fella too. Here's hoping we see him back at the helm at Craven Park as soon as possible with a clean bill of health.

Agreed, very best of luck Holty from all at Carlisle. If you can demonstrate the same spirit you did for the Border Raiders you'll beat it!
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Very best of luck in fighting a horrible disease! As usual I know the RL family will stand strong and support Holty throughout his illness, hopefully to recovery.

I've had dealings with darren and it has always been a pleasure: an affable, knowledgeable man: a gentleman.
Lets hope he beats this monster

Sad  that he has to say," I’d rather not say what kind of cancer it is – cancer is cancer."   Well, yeas and no." Better out in the open so he can get full support for everyone.

John, he may have his reasons for that - if I can work out how to clear my inbox I'll pm you

Get well soon Darren. Played against him many times and I must say his kicking game was up there with the best of them!
