Doncaster v barrow

Recommended Posts

We should be able to gain at least a BP if we shore up our defense, upsets do happen and if we manage to win the 3 points it would be a massive confidence booster while shattering the bottom few teams chances of catching us in the dog fight, the more daylight we have going into the last 3 games the better.

Dons v Raiders BIG Match Preview taken from Doncaster website......

Doncaster Rugby League Club play the first of two consecutive home games this Sunday when they take on Barrow Raiders in the Kingstone Press Championship at the Keepmoat Stadium (3:00pm kick-off).

Doncaster's head coach Tony Miller will be aiming for a hat-trick of wins after steering his side to victories over both Batley Bulldogs and Hunslet Hawks in the last fortnight. Miller's side could move into the top eight on Sunday if other results go in their favour.

The Dons will be looking to field the same side that beat Batley with Danny Cowling and Liam Kay available from Wakefield once more. Kyle Trout featured in Friday night's West Yorkshire Derby against Leeds and is therefore unavailable.

The fans and supporters of Doncaster will be hoping for more of the same after last week's unexpected demolition of Batley at Mount Pleasant. Miller said: "We were very impressive against the Bulldogs last week and everybody worked hard for one another.

"Our forward pack provided a great platform for our half backs to control and influence the game and I thought we were worthy winners on the afternoon.

"Barrow will see this as a must win game given their current league position and will look to make things difficult for us from the very first minute.

"They have some good players within their squad and are led well by their captain Liam Harrison who is a quality back rower.

"It's important that we keep our composure and back up last week's win with another good performance and look to keep this momentum going."

Barrow Raiders head coach Darren Holt will give late fitness tests to Kurt Haggerty (wrist) and Dan Toal (head), and is hopeful both will be cleared for action at the Keepmoat Stadium.

But Holt has sent out a warning message to his troops, despite last week's 28-26 win over Hunslet and said: "There are some players who have just done the wrong things at the wrong time and that can't keep happening.

"They either learn from their mistakes, or they simply won't be playing. It has to be that way from here on in."

"If we ever manage to get an 80-minute performance on the pitch, then I feel sorry for whoever we are playing against."

Load of ######, something needs to change. And before all the people who werent at the game start with "you cant say that after 1 result" its not the result, its the performances, it was embarrasing being sat in the stand as a barrow fan today, hope they can sort it out before halifax because they really will murder us with a performance like that.
