I dont think the result today means me are hopeless away from home. They have class in their side which we just dont have. They'll run us very close at home aswell I reckon.

I think we will have to wait a while before we can say this Barrow side is hopeless at away.

I think crusaders are a better team than were giving them credit for, ran away with it after going a man down which is dissapointing. Hopefully we can get something out of next weeks game against leigh.

Don't know why I put home I've edited. Who knows maybe it is the travelling. This Crusaders side is a very good one though.

Matched them in the 1st half but for some inexcusable reason were absolutely terrible when they went down to 12 men. I 've been saying it for long enough but why do we try and out muscle teams who are far bigger than ourselves down the middle of the park. The Crusaders pack are enormous, so why try to compete with them in the forwards.

We have a man more and they were by far the better team in the 2nd half. I thought Harrison and Dawson were our standout players, Grant finished his tries off well but needs to see more ball as does the whole of the outside backs.

Finally I was very impressed with North Wales, there team is going to be a match for most teams in our division especially at the Racecourse, which has very good facilities, also well done to the Crusaders army of fans you were brilliant, I wish we had vocal fans like that at home.

I'm confident about next week but beware Leigh beat Batley 52-12 today.

Leigh have probably the best team in the Championship since RL went to licensing.

Their squad is probably stronger than our 2009 one. Next week is going to be very very tough.

I agree RSN next week will be really really tough to get anything out of the game

A good game and closer than the score suggests. Well done the Barrow fans you were there in numbers and made some noise. That number 11 of yours looks a bit useful.

We matched them in the first half but just went downhill from there, not to be harsh but backy is not championship standards anymore! And cammy was poor today as well but I liked the looks of briscoe, quite confident of a bonus point minimum next week

Liam Harrison, constantly sounded out as one of the best back rowers in the league by other coaches

 

We did well first half and carried that on until the sending off, the game could have gone either way. After Platt got his red, our defence for some reason just seemed to fall apart and we never looked like scoring even with the amount of posession near the Crusaders line

It does not help one tiny bit when our own SUPPORTERS shout that you are when they are playing, regardless even if we are playing badly. Get behind the guys or ......you know the rest!!!

I was really disappointed at our defence today.

Cru are a very good side though and there won't be many teams that match them at home.

Their fans are brilliant.

Judging by the commentary it sounded as if we matched Crusaders for the half the game so I don't thin verbal abuse of players is at all necessary. Onwards and upwards let's look forward to next week against Leigh.

Must admit i didn't hear any abuse directed at our players from where i was sat. If that is the case then it is totally unacceptable from our fans. We were beaten fairly and squarly today. Our team is very young, hungry and mostly inexperienced at this level. I'm sure given more game time, the team will gel, but i still think we are short of experience in the front row and a half back we can bring off the bench.

The Leigh deal with Haggerty seems to have gone very quiet. I hope we haven't been stitched up again.

A huge thank you to all the Barrow fans making the trip down to North Wales. It was great to see you all and, result apart I hope you enjoyed your day. See you all in August.
