Thanks Southsider, I thought it was strange he wasn't picked, same with Mossop and Casey?

I would of had all 3 in my starting 17 if fit.

If Casey was injured then he must have done it boxing cos he took part in the RL boxing tournament Rugger in the Ring during the week.

Did you have a bang on your head as a child Derwent?

Are you seriously suggesting that Barrow's Sean Casey went into an open draw to fight the likes of Street, Sibbett, Sculthorpe, Hunte, Radford, Senior & Cassidy?

Have you seen the size of the lad in comparison with those guys?

(I think you will find it was former St Helens, Swinton and Whitehaven player Sean Casey who took part in Rugger in the ring last week).

Must admit Keith I did wonder that Sean is built like a whippet so to take on the big guys he wouldve had to have a lot of guts !

One thing with this rugger in the ring put Brett in there and he would bulldoze everyone in sight !!

Bit of a " Mr Know it all " that Wonky :D

You can't argue with a fan with 20-20 vision, x/ray eyes, and the same optician as stevie wonder, but I do agree with Wonky, the future is bright, the futures blue and white.

Apart from the comment about lying on and the comment about Calderwood stepping into touch (ill wait for a video) what else do you disagree with may I ask?

Er yeah, not much else you said about Town other than those 2 things you were completely wrong about. The reason the ref pinged you for offside constantly is because, you know, you were offside constantly. As soon as Acton and Walne came on we sped our play the ball up and your defence couldnt cope. Hence they were offside constantly.

I always have barrow blinkers on,like you I always stand about the halfway, if an opposition player has a try dissallowed for being held up, I would say what a relief, if its a barrow try dissallowed, I would say refs blind. But if im honest from 50 yards, and a pile of bodies covering the ball, I would never really know. But what I would say is that despite all barrow fans being biased,all of them have said Workington were the better team and would have won whoever the ref was. The first dsiputed decision I can remember was barrow workington cup semi in the 1950s, all the workington fans said barrow player was on his back, all barrow fans said he scored then was turned on his back, since then there has been hundreds of disputes, thats what the game is all about, One thing I am sure of, I have never seen a ref change his mind.
