Well that was a shadow of the first half performance against the eagles last week. We just havent got going at all. Barrow there for the taking but we just aren't at the races so far .

IMO Barrow came to mix it and didn't have the power, Barrow pack very much second best and tried to spoil all the time, take out Harrison & Campbell they have not got much, Town are streets ahead, keep it going and a few more of these wins will come, Walne, Stack & Dowes really outstanding today.

A wins a win but gee talk about having chances to nail a team down !!! Hope the new signing is unwrapped , he is desperately needed in the half back spot to join Lupton who is looking lively .Walne was great today ,Brett Phillips and Stack to , and Callum was excellent . Dowes some warm and some stone cold. Id worry if I was Barra

At half time I commented how we seem to make hard work of it against teams we expect to beat but in the second half we came out, upped our game and blew Barrow away. If we put the first half of last week together with today's second half it would have been a cricket score.

A lot of good performances today and all the young lads were on top song. Walne, Acton, the two Phillips, Morris, Hulme, are all settling in very well and Kris Coward is getting better and better every game. Peter Lupton looks a lot fitter than last season and it is showing in his performances and I would have Brett Carter before any fullback in this league. No weak links today and a crowd of 972.

totally disagree about dowes, he had a nightmare. adam walne was the pick of the forwards, callum phillips was outstanding 2nd half and i thought olstrum had a really good game. 1st half we coughed up too much ball and let a below average side stay with us, 2nd half we controlled the game and although i think we were still only in 2nd gear we ran over the top of barrow, who im afraid will be playing championship 1 rugby next year. i also thought coward had a very good game today and him and walne just steadied us up. barrows only player who caused us troubles was liam harrison and he was still outplayed by stack and phillips, next week is a very winnable game if we perform to the standard we can. overall very pleased with the win, but weve played better this year and lost.

Aye that was the worst I've seen us ! They are doomed on that showing , a top side would have put 70 on them minimum with them chances . We still have to realise that very rarely in this league are you gonna run over defences with sheer barge , but we revert to it far to often .

i was a bit nervy before this one ,and after the first 20 mins i had good reason to be lol.we were a tad lethargic till we found our feet and got going.our props were awesome today bar for Ewan who seemed a little of the pace ,although his 2nd stint was far better than his first.great pass off Morris for Calders up the wing,we started to show some nice touches in the 2nd half when we had a bit of a roll on.

Adam Walne was my mom followed by Callum Phillips thought Walne and Acton got us the momentum back that got us on the front foot. Id like to see Coward start and Thacks back to coming off the bench

Lets have another win next week...

I said a few times today that i feel more comfortable when we have Acton,Walne and Coward on than i do when we have our more experienced players on.IE Thackray and Dowes. Dowes was playing like a bloody stand off today.

Yeah i agree that barrow fans to be worried on that showing. Something even worse for barrow was be small group of fans knocking the drink back using foul language verbally abusing individual players. They let themselves down.

it was the same with dandy on callum, trying to take him out late because he was getting schooled by a lad playing only his 5th pro game. today confirmed one thing though, not one of the barrow players who left town in the last 2 years are anywhere near good enough for the step up.

over ell miller and calders? certainly not. dont think he done much at town tbh, and nothing from the last 3 times weve played them would suggest he would get anywhere near our side.
