Barrow have announced that they have formed a partnership with Salford Red Devils. That put's paid to any chance of getting the Walne brothers back at Town.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

How can it be too late we're less than a quarter of the way into the season?

Tough going for us all ,maybe very very tough , that's all we can say now or we may as well give in with our craic on the set up of the team etc . We've got to hang on to even a minority chance while it's there , while being well aware of how things are .

They should have a decent squad if the Walne lads aren't getting in every week.

As things stand at the moment Barrow would only be able to have one player on DR as they currently have 4 on loan from Leigh. So, not a lot of benefit there unless they "sign on" the Leigh players for 12 months like Swinton did making them Barrow players.

Keith I can see a couple of the Leigh lads going back. Chris Rowe has played 1 game (against Milford) and Craig Briscoe will be out for months with ligament damage sustained in your win at CP.

 

Govin was signed on a months loan so that just leaves Joe Bullock who to be fair has looked the pick of the bunch so far. We also have Ryan Shaw on a months deal from Warrington. Maybe we will DR the whole Salford squad as you did with Widnes last year?

 

I dont know the rules and wrangles of the DR system so god knows whats going to happen.

 

Bobby Goulding has obviously decided its the only chance we have of staying up?

Are the Walne brothers good? I noticed they always seem to be mentioned in regards to potential signings on here

They're good . Adam is big and rangy and can play prop or second row . Has good skills . Jordan is more compact , strong runner but primarily rock hard defender and teak tough . Good pair to get hold of.

Yeah there good, but are playing pretty regularly for Salford at the moment. Jordan is rock solid in defence, Adam is the star though, would be a welcome edition to any championship team, but as I say they are both top quality.

Jordan has but Adam hasn't. Jordan's been on the bench for the last 5 games but Adam has only made 1 appearance so far this season.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

ah right. I just usually see his name in the 19s like this week and assumed he was getting game time. New coach new start for him though.

Our last 2 coaches were but it seems things have changed since bobbie took over, I'm still against it but if it keep us up then guess that's what we have to do
