    been there slept in!
  1. Maybe he pleaded not guilty was due to fact there wasn't anything wrong with the tackle... only a thought
  2. What an absolute joke! After seeing the incident a couple of times I still can't see how he is even cited let alone banned for longer than a grade D, which stipulates (3-5) games, it happened 5m in front of a touch judge who gave nothing, 10m in front of the Town bench and nobody reacted which is usually an indicator, the lad unfortunately got injured while being tackled,is this now going to be standard procedure when someone gets hurt being tackled, the defender is not going to play for a month and a half! Is it any wonder why people are getting disillusioned with the sport when it seems so corrupt by those who run it.
  3. Morty... il agree the ref was shocking but I don't usually bag the ref as he was the same for both teams ish! IMO, I will agree though that was the worst we have played this year by a big distance, but Barrow dropped plenty of ball in exits, gave a lot of penalties (most were justified) which is no fault of the ref, it's only because of how well Barrow can defend, Town tonight had the field position/ & possesion to win 2 games tonight & probably would have beaten every other team (apart from Toronto) in this league as I thought they looked pretty organised in attack, again that's only my opinion
  4. The ref wasn't great but Barrow weren't either to be fair, too much dropped ball coming off there line and too many penalties given away, to be honest I thought Town played well and it's only because Barrow's defence this year is great is why the scoreline wasn't closer,remember Town are where we were 3 years ago rebuilding with a lot of amateur players, however though it shows the sign of a good side when Barrow defended there own area for 10/15 min spells 3 times during the game and within 3/4 tackles at Towns end of the field scored a try
  5. If you fellas play like that every week you will win 80% of games this year no doubt, like I said earlier in the week Barrows defence is pretty impressive and it had to be tonight as the discipline was poor and gave Town loads of possession in good ball areas, both teams can take big positives from the game,Cresta I'm sure will not be happy with how they played but defended well & im sure Clarky will be happy with how you bounced back after last week, I enjoyed the evening and as usual your travelling fans were great
  6. I can't comment about Hulme for you fellas last season,whether it's the coaching/the environment he's in or whatever reason, all Barrow fans are enjoying watching him play at the moment though
  7. Stack is playing with the form us Barrow fans are used to seeing against us, Hulme is looking a quality centre and is a class act, maybe because of the service he's getting, I'm an old man and I could play wing and score try's outside him! Workington are going to have to attack at there best as someone has said because Barrows defence is ruthless at the moment, that saying the attack isn't too shabby either
  8. Regarding the crowd someone questioned on the raiders Facebook page why the attendances arnt great last week, there are obviously reasons why people can't go and whether they play Saturday nights or Sundays it isn't going to suit everyone but yesterday (correct me if I'm wrong), bar 1 club every other amateur club who play national league, Cumbria league or north west counties were away from home so wouldn't get to watch, I'm not saying it would change attendances much but a lot of 'genuine' supporters/players are lost because of this,myself personally havnt got a season ticket because of this reason, good result by the way!!
  9. Great result for Barrow today,Coventry are an improving club so to put 50 on is a top effort, I also watched the Whitehaven game and yes Haven put a big effort on a slop of a 'field' but they showed little attacking threat while Toronto especially in the first 30 looked like they could break them regularly, I know conditions are what they are but they have played them at the right time of the year, if that same game was played on a dry field it would have been a 40/50 pointer for Toronto, it's a shame we won't get to see Toronto at craven park as it would be game of the season
  10. The guy seems a great bloke,everyone will think different but for me the best player I've seen in the last 30 years, inc Lockyer,Lewis,Hanley et al
  11. He does it because it would be stupid if he wore the opposition's colours
  12. Thank you,remind me next time not to ask a genuine question, I can't understand why this forum has lost so many contributors
  13. Well strangely enough I might be,that's why I'm asking 345 in advance
  14. Just wondering if the date has been confirmed for next years GF?
  15. If Chris Hill is average,I'd love a team of average players!
