  1. Thought ref was poor to both teams but well done Barrow. Great performance boys
  2. Very sad to hear of the death of Phil Jackson, arguably Barrow's greatest ever player, certainly only man to rival Willie Horne. Sad to think that the great side of the fifties is no more. I'm too young to see him play but remember my father talking about him. What a three quarter line, Lewthwaite, Jackson, Goodwin and Castle. Phil - RIP and thanks for everything
  3. Yes, all the talk of top 6 is a great bonus but the job for the club this season was survival and a bit of stability. Great achievement on both count, well done all the club and players
  4. Great result for Barrow but it's a poor do when a big city like Bradford struggles to support a Rugby League team.
  5. I think it's been a good season so far, I can't see us getting relegated so as long as the team keeps putting in that effort I'll be very happy with the progress the club is making.
  6. Can't believe any true rugby league supporter would laugh if a fellow club had financial difficulties. We are not in a position to speak after the Johnson interlude. Well done Fev, hopefully in a few years we will be in a similar position to yourselves. Who knows, we may give a better account at CP.
  7. Maybe not Super league but a very very good championship team. If Fev get promoted and Leeds relegated will we see Fev loaning fringe players to the Rhinos?
  8. Not sure how great Dave Brown was for Barrow. Looked great in Div 2 but went to Hull when we needed him in Div 1. Hull let him go as he didn't want to train properly. People like Dave Brown are a quick fix, we need to put the money into the academy or other players who will stick with the club so we can establish ourselves in The Championship
  9. Funny game rugby, Bradford beat Batley, Batley beat Barrow and then Barrow beat Bradford. Who cares, just a great win by the lads, well done Barrow
  10. Don't think there was any secret as to how Batley won today. Good, strong well organised pack, strong running three quarters and two creative half backs to link them together. No criticism here, just admiration. Most of our lads tried hard and put in a shift but we are asking a lot for 12 men to take on a good team, someone needs to have a good look at themselves and then look at the lads he let down
  11. This will not be an easy game at all but I'm certain Fev will bring a lot more fans than Huddersfield, it was a pretty poor turnout for a "Super" league team.
  12. Great performance tonight lads
  13. Sir Kev's at it again, lets help these two rugby league icons and get this latest figure past a million £.
  14. Sun, Sea, Sand and Submarines, what more could you ask for......... maybe a game of rugby thrown in

    You just have to look at his record, whatever we say about this alleged incident there have been 10 more missed
  16. Don't know what happens with unclaimed tickets. After two weeks I'd be happy to see it go into the club funds. I don't think many of us buy tickets to win the money, it's more to help the club - I do the same at away matches (remember them)
  17. Well deserved Kevin but you'll always be Sir Kev north of Watford Gap I'm trying to compare Andrea Leadsom's achevements with Sir Kev, can't seem to think of much for the Tory politician
  18. A good win is what I want, 36 - 6 would be great but mustn't be compacent. Also a crowd of 2,000 would be fantastic for atmosphere and club finances
  19. Good win away from home Barrow, any news on Hakim ?
  20. It was a good win, two in a row but somehow without seeing the game I don't feel the same passion
  21. You clearly never saw Bobby Goulding's performances in a Barrow shirt
  22. This is awful news, \keith was a great bloke and did so much for Barrow Rugby. RIP Keith and condolences to the family
  23. Sir Kevin is doing his bit for his teammate https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/sinfield-7-in-7
