It's a long journey, but so it was for Whitehaven. Can we go up there and change our spots? Close game, us by about 8, expect Blacky back to near commanding form and to sway it.

Heart hoping and praying for a much improved performance and a morale boosting 3 points.

Head telling me theres more of the same to come.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

 i cant see were a change is going to come from to be honest, we were dire at dewsbury but credit to dews for wanting to play with some biff, after 2 weeks i did think we would have been well up for haven game but we went downhill more and couldent even do basic tackles,keep hold a the ball pass at speed and nobody wanted to take the lead on the pitch and show the way like we have had in the past,infact most wanted to be at home cutting their lawn like a few dogs fans were, i really feel nothing will change until we have a player like cookie/tommo/ kaine/hemingway/tiger/flanny/ even marchy a few years back type player would change us for the good and lead the players out on the pitch with instuctions from the bench.  so i think the dogs are in for another upset sunday, barrow 34 dogs 18.. hope am wrong. :(

Sorry to join the glums but i cannot see the present players turning this around. Am hoping we at least play with more flair and commitment but as with all the teams we have played so far Barrow will move the ball more. I go Barrow 36 Dogs 16. Please prove me wrong and play as we did at Keighley away last season that was the turning point in our march to the grand final. The shackels came off MORE PLEASE  Mr Kear.

Cannot see us winning there on current form. Last two games have been atrocious.

Similar. Try as I might, after the last two games, I just cannot see us getting near them. They are also in a bit of form too just to make it doubly hard!

hard to see another victory this season if we continue playing like the previous two games and relegation seems a certainty

Barrows only league win this season was away to Sheffield ......???

A 30-12 win to Barrow. Barrow ran Doncaster close last week losing by 2 points and appear to be improving under Goulding. I except an improvement in the workrate of the Batley players but I am a bit worried if the wingers/centres are Finigan, Patterson, Bretherton and Brown on a wide field.

12-0 to barra.

we are nothing but relegation fodder now.
