Buzzing town got the win it really could have went either way, when town got a large number of repeat sets on your line I was ranting for town for not completing it but credit for you guys stopping us from scoring!
I've never seen Harrison be handled in any game I've seen him play like we did, but tierney was the best player on that field by a country mile, I just hope wigan don't recall him because he is class!!

2 good teams and 34 men who deserve to be I super league 2 with displays like that!!

And a special shout out to the barrow fans afterwards shaking hands and taking that killer of a defeat on the chins to wish the Town the best for the season!!

It was the same with batley for us at home last kick of the game they scored for the win!! Well try in there terms but does make ya feel sick!!

Sorry if it sounded like sour grapes Wonky. It wasn't intended to. I know that a penalty should be given for a rip out. It just seems such a pity that the result of a game like that should be decided by a last minute penalty. Anyway good luck to Town for the rest of the season except when we come to DP.

Over the 80 mins we didn't deserve to win this game, a draw would have been a fair result IMO, but we panicked too much in the last 5 mins when the game was locked at 6 all, and blew it with a silly penalty right at the death.We had plenty of chances to take a one pointer and the wrong option was taken. It hasn't been mentioned yet on here but from where I was sat there was a blatant forward pass which resulted in Shaw's try. It could of course have been the angle where I was at in the ground but it did look forward.

The positives I would take from this game were defensively we were brilliant keeping them out for 4 consecutive sets of 6 took some effort. As has been mentioned Bullock stood out for me along with Dawson again, but the whole pack worked tirelessly the whole game. This young side will get better as the season goes on, I just hope we can get it right before it's not too late.

its ok mate, I didn't mean you for the sour grapes, just the penalty quote.Other than raiders96 we usually all have good humoured banter. We're all in for a tough season and I think anyone being honest will agree there's probably only going to be 1 Cumbrian team survive if any at all. Who that will be only time will tell. Good luck and hope were both up in super league 2 next year.
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

I don't think Harrison had his best game today he was run over for the first try and lost the ball 3 or 4 times though it was a good game thought bullock was outstanding again

by the sounds of it on the radio jambos were very lucky to get any points let alone all 3 think they,ll be found out against stiffer opposition.[/quote]

 

I think all 3 Cumbrian teams will struggle against the better teams in our league!

It wasn't the referee that gave it - it was the touch judge on the popular side, the referee appeared to be allowing play on!

 

 

Why was it then the referree and 24 players appeared to stand still, the only town player who gave chase after the rip out was Marc Shackley.

 

Mind you I did have my head in my hands for a few seconds lol so my memory may be impaired.

Spot on Ritchie. On the subject of our try Vievers said on interview on RC that it was 3 metres forward. Couldn't be that much if it was forward. It's all history now anyway.

It was a blatant forward pass that  resulted in the Barrow try, but like you said it's history now anyway.
