  1. Home draw is the main thing
  2. Great player, great coach, legend to the town and to the game of Rugby League. RIP Frank
  3. Done but what is it trying to say - good performances have more effect than a 100 gimmicks
  4. Don't think they ever played all together at international level but Lewthwaite, Jackson, Goodwin and Castle is one heck of a three quarter line especially with Ted Toohey and Willie Horne at halfback. Did David Cairns and Eddie ever play together at U23 ?
  5. Thanks Martin for the many years of service to Rugby league and thanks for these last few seasons with Barrow. It seems a long time since I saw you play in the Challenge Cup final at Twickenham. Enjoy your retirement - you've earned it
  6. Hugh can't have been that old, great servant to Barrow in some of those dark days. Thanks Hugh RIP
  7. Come on Fev need to stay within spitting distance of The Rhinos or they'd have no players. Maybe Halifax could move to Nova Scotia - no name changes and local derbies with Toronto
  8. Good luck Lionheart - as you say you have the same problems as all the other clubs outside of the Sky Circus. We all have to stick together. The stadiums of the super league can now enjoy the thousands of away fans from Toronto - good luck to those who've sold their souls
  9. I think both Mike Murray and Frank Castle ran at The Powderhall sprints With all due respect no one in the present Barrow era could have touched them even though I never saw them play. I don't think anyone around in this era could have touched Ian Ball except perhaps Nico but there again Nico didn't have Bally's sidestep, acceleration and couldn't kick goals in his sleep.

    Paul Cullen on a disciplinary panel - that is poacher turned gamekeeper, they'll have Gareth Hock on there soon!!

    That's it, What on earth will we do next year? Where will we be next year?
  12. So, we only have to go and give the Wolf pack a good trashing in Canada.... Things do not look good, today was the big four pointer that coould decide the season
  13. That's good news Now come on boys the towns behind you

    Think it's been none stop decline since Dougie Laughton left and all the expesive RU signings left. Problem is they still think they're going to be the cup kings, next season..........
