    Rumours of a 2 x 10 SLs and the rest can whistle. Cannot see Barrow being invited to the party.

    Having witnessed the second half performance by Barrow on Sunday coach Paul Crarey and his backroom staff deserve immense praise. We have had good results earlier in the season against Toronto & Leigh but Sunday was against one of our relegation rivals Sheffield, a must win game. After a disastrous first half nobody in the crowd gave Barrow any chance of a comeback. The second half was a revelation, an unstoppable display of controlled, attacking football that Sheffield just could not answer. This from a team with very little experience at this level, indeed several were playing amateur 2/3 seasons ago but who are keen to learn from a v good coach. They all train together, (no 3/4 players drafted in each week ) ,and play as a team and play as friends. Undefeated at home since 2016 .All on a shoestring budget. Well done Mr Crarey & Co. If we stay up just hope we do not get shafted by the RFL! PS. Spedding for Shef/St Helens is some player!

    why no fox sports channel on tv?

    Mine`s on the window sill, will that matter?
  4. Tane Manehari was a fantastic player for Barrow, in my opinion the best No.6 in the last 20 odd years.
  5. The forum has discussed many times how many games should be played and the affect on player welfare. Instead of putting a limit on the clubs fixtures, put a limit on how many games a player can play in a season. Eg: 25 games a season. The coach would have to plan accordingly, would he play all his "best" players at the start of the season and then rest them until the play-offs or play them regularly throughout the season etc. Either way it would give younger players more regular 1st team football because it would be the team with the best overall squad and tactical coach that would be the most successful. It would encourage clubs to invest in youth and perhaps even the game out. It would also give us great Kudos in the press as the first sport to put player welfare first. Obviously there would be would be minutiae to work out but one thing we can agree on is we want to see all players as fresh as possible and not flogging them as we are now.
  6. Sounds like a job for Toby Young. He`s available now.

    Are fans expected to pay £15/16/17 when you can sit on a hill and get a better view.! Sheffield have been well and truly stitched.

    Amazon r us.

    Too busy watching Barrow !
  9. Whoever steps into Mr Woods seat their first decision should be appoint somebody who has contacts with management at Amazon.They appear to be one of the leaders on the media circuit, are looking to broaden their sports content. We need someone who can pitch all the positives about RL, a dynamic game, visually stunning, THE most physically demanding sport, gentlemen off the field, played all over the world, a growing ladies game, a successful world cup.and all at the fraction of the price of football. Whats not to like. Just don`t mention the moaning supporters.
  10. Gale and Brown .Day and night repeat the mantra; "Repeat sets".
  11. Tonga were 16 points down to NZ and looked 2nd best, if we get on top early I don't think they could replicate that recovery. I think we have too much guile.

    Toronto game....Cresta front row...

    Hope the lads that are picked fully enjoy themselves, no negativity, no moaning, for most it will be their only opportunity to visit Canada and experience a different culture, just embrace it.
  13. Having just watched Toulouse V Rochdale on you tube , Toulouse appear to play with the excitement and spirit I always associated with French rugby. Catalan seem to be playing without any joy, they are playing to an Australian method that is already outdated, without the players capable of playing that way even if they wanted to. The soul seems to have gone out of the club. The best thing the president can do would be to pop over to Cas and take some advice from Mr Powell on what is needed. Imagine the of play in Perpignon ,full houses every week.
