Barrow vs swinton predictions

97 posts in this topic

Really hope Barrow can stay up. But.........IF you do go down the club can hold it's head high having not 'whored' itself to a SL club.

 

The ideal scenario would be for both Hunslet and Swinton to go, although I think York are already doomed.

Oh please do me a favour...the team that beat you tonight had two DR's in it the rest were our players.

 

Sour grapes spring to mind.

cant believe tonights game . nil nil at half  time,have no idea to cross the line second half. players and coaches must take a good luck at themselves. we are actually worse team than last season, at least we had some ideas when we were 10 yards out and played something different. too predictable in game plan and this has to go down to coaching. we have no plan b or c if you want to argue  about it.

we got out played by a team who were below us in the league but even more a team who should never have been able to put 22 points into us after the first 40 mins with no reply.

no line breakers and no ideas . players who say they wont hang around if we go down  should think twice because a performance like tonight didn't put them in any shop windows apart from  one or two . only the discount bin. sorry.

Harsh...your not a bad side and your overlooking the fact that Swinton have hit form in the last six or seven games, to be honest realistically we would have been above you on Sunday night had we not lost in the last 20 seconds at Doncaster.

 

At the minute one of four teams could join York( who I think are possibly doomed now) so it's all still to play for.

Last 3 away games have been dismal only 2 tries in 240 mins and shipped plenty . Matches off the wall analysis

Barrow have now got to beat Keighley and Featherstone beat Hunslet. Barrow and Hunslet are both at home. The only away teams Keighley have beaten are Whitehaven & Swinton. Hunslets only home wins are Whitehaven,York & Doncaster. This doesn't mean a lot but I would take Barrow to save relegation.

Hunslet also beat barrow didnt they on opening game, not that it says alot, almost every team has beat us at their place!

Hunslet beat Workington at home aswell

 

... and Keighley also won away at our place as well!

Looking at the table, is it not the case that you have to beat Keighley by more than 12 to guarantee staying up? If you let them get the bonus point you'll both be on 33 but they'll have the better points difference. Whatever happens to us and Swinton will then be irrelevant (for you lads at any rate!!)

Just a quick well done to you Barrow fans who made it down on a Thursday evening to watch a very close game between two old greats of the game. Your commitment to your club epitomises all that is good in rugby league.

Swinton had a bit of luck with the bounce of the ball but apparently we only missed 7 tackles all match so thats pretty exceptional. Plus we really have turned the corner in recent weeks and have at last got a settled team. Your boys had us all worried until the end.

For what its worth I thought Nicholson was highly impressive. How Leigh are letting him go is beyond me.

Good luck for whatever is in your future. I think for yourselves with your much more secure foundations relegation will not be as big as a disaster as it would be for us. Then again its not over yet so fingers crossed for you

Finally I hope Raiders96 enjoys the last week of school holidays and good luck at big school next term ;)

Gutted !!!!!!! we simply ain't good enough we had plenty of possession in first half and couldn't do a thing  with it, I think that's been the story all season long

 

 

Worst defence & attack in the league says it all sadly, why travelling on a bus for a couple of hours leads to heavy losses bemuses me.

Because there's a difference between supporting a club and supporting a team.

The majority of people nowadays go to matches to support a team. The only thing they care about is the results. If they are bad they don't support the team, if they are good they will support the team it's as simple as that. We had around 1500 of these in 2009 who turned up to most games.

The thing I think our club has more of than any other teams in the division is people who support the club. When it gets tough people will still attend games as they are supporting Barrow. I think this is one of the reasons we didn't go down the DR route, it would of annoyed a lot of the loyal fans.

But the fact we actually have people who will actually get on the coach no matter who they are playing and support Barrow especially on a Thursday night when a defeat is likely is a great credit to our supporters.

Barrow has been one of the hardest clubs to support over the past 3 years due to what has gone on, but despite having a team with the worst attack and defence in the division we still average better than most teams in the league. It really speaks volumes of how good the support of the club is.

Good post 'kid'. I love watching RL at any level but above all my own home team. If and it is if we get relegated it will make no difference to myself or my wife on whether to continue to buy season tickets.

IF we go down we get to see a few new places and probably a few more wins and we can stop worrying about the floodlight fund.

While your post is commendable, I think you got the wrong end of the stick,  the bus journey  jibe leading to big losses was aimed at the players not the supporters.
