  1. Some great match ups this weekend and as ever making predictions tough to make. However being biased for my home team I think Barrow will edge Fevs, but fingers crossed on this one!!! The other tough fixtures are Widnes V Sheffield so the advantage goes with the home team and Workington V Dewsbury. Although Workington are unfortunately demoted next season they too have home advantage. Batley will be looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat. So my winning predictions are in bold. Barrow Raiders v Featherstone Rovers KO 15:00 Bradford Bulls v Whitehaven KO 15:00 Halifax Panthers v Newcastle Thunder KO 15:00 Leigh Centurions v York City Knights KO 15:00 London Broncos v Batley Bulldogs KO 15:00 Widnes Vikings v Sheffield Eagles KO 15:00 Draw Workington Town v Dewsbury Rams KO 14:00 Draw
  2. Newcastle V Dewsbury Barrow V Bradford Batley V Widnes Featherstone V York London Broncos V Halifax Sheffield V Workington Whitehaven V Leigh Winners in Bold
  3. There is plenty to do in Barrow Blue Ox. More than you think. The town has football club that have in the last couple of years played league football which is a higher standard that it has been in for the last 40+ years. Barrow RL have done extremely well to retain its fan base with the local football club being on the rise. Geographically Barrow is located on a coast with reasonable beaches with scenic views of the mountains in the surrounding area, then there's the lake district 20 minutes drive away which gives you the options of water sports, cycling, walking mountains, etc etc....... I'd say there's more Barrow than most other clubs
  4. It would be great to retain the services of Sammut. He's been a stand out player so far this season.
  5. Well done Fax. Much the better team and I'd have thought our lot would have given you a good game but it wasn't to be.
  6. As I was present at the game, I would definitely say Leigh didn't put the cue on the rack. It was more of the case of whatever was said during the break at half time got Barrow motivated. They came out a looking like a different team and were more energetic. As for not considering a full performance from Leigh? Leigh were very lucky IMHO.
  7. Hey up, Based purely on our current form Fax are there for the taking, absolutely nothing against Fax who are one of the most consistent team in the league. Hopefully it'll be great viewing for the mutual supporters watching the game on telly, fingers crossed for the result.
  8. If we continue our form prior to the weekend internationals Fax are there for the taking. Plus the home advantage the odds should be in our favour. However, Fax are a very good established Championship team so this game should be a cracker!! At a guess, Barrow should win by 12.
  9. Thoroughly deserved.
  10. I think we can most definitely remain in the top 6. It's a shame we're not playing this weekend as looking from our previous results we have hit a bit of form, especially after the Leigh game. Yes we were unfortunate not to get the result against Leigh, however tallying up the points for and against from our last couple of performances, we have scored 130 points for and only conceived 32..... 28 of them against Leigh. I suppose a good indicator too will be when we play Fax at home a week Monday. They too will be looking at top 6 position so this game should be a cracker!!
  11. Batley Bulldogs v Newcastle Thunder Dewsbury Rams v London Broncos Sheffield Eagles v Bradford Bulls Whitehaven v Halifax Panthers Widnes Vikings v York City Knights Workington v Barrow Raiders Some tough decisions again this week week. Any team on their day can get a result.
  12. Bradford Bulls v Newcastle Thunder KO 18:00 Featherstone Rovers v Whitehaven KO 17:30 SUNDAY 22nd MAY Batley Bulldogs v London Broncos KO 15:00 Dewsbury Rams v Barrow Raiders KO 15:00 Leigh Centurions v Workington Town KO 15:00 York City Knights v Halifax Panthers KO 15:00 York & Bulls both having the home advantage, they will edge Fax and Newcastle respectively. The other home wins are based on form and where they lie in the table. Dewsbury did great against Featherstone but that may took a lot out of their tank and with the return of key players like Sammut & Forster I think Barrow edge a result.
  13. Although possibly classed as a semi professional team, I do believe Brett McDermott has actually played or has started games in each position between 1-13 in his career at Barrow.
  14. Jake's defence has improved massively over the season as he has bulked up a bit and probably given him more confidence. Not sure if you want to watch the Widnes game again but his in game kicking had great depth and put Widnes on the back foot. Yesterday yes he missed a couple of conversions but again in game, spot on.
  15. London Broncos v Newcastle Thunder Barrow Raiders v Workington Town Bradford Bulls v York City Knights Dewsbury Rams v Featherstone Rovers Halifax Panthers v Sheffield Eagles Widnes Vikings v Whitehaven
  16. Even as a Barrow fan I can only see this result going one way and that's to Fev. I think our current squad are carry knocks but hopefully we can put up a show.
  17. The highs and lows of a rugby league career. You could be playing against Melbourne Storm one week, then Dewsbury Rams the next!!!
  18. Leigh Centurions v Sheffield Eagles Newcastle Thunder v Halifax Panthers Featherstone Rovers v Widnes Vikings London Broncos v Dewsbury Rams Whitehaven v Bradford Bulls Workington Town v Batley Bulldogs And Hopefully Barrow Raiders V York knights
  19. It is evident that losing Miloudi has cost Barrow and since his loss Barrow have played three teams that should be in the mix with the likes of Featherstone, Fax and Batley. All of which are well established Championship sides. As for today playing a team on the up like Fax, Barrow would have needed a full compliment of key players which was disrupted with the likes of Sammut being taken off with what was suspected to be a serious injury. This reduced Barrow playing a hooker in the halves. Then a calf strain to Ellis Gillam and a bicep injury to Danny Langtree. This will have put Barrow at a huge disadvantage but hey, that's rugby league and you can't take anything away from Halifax as they played well and worked hard to get the result. I still think and I'm hoping Barrow will still be in the mix come towards the business end of the season. I don't think they have been bigged up too much as they have beaten Widnes and Bradford both away from home so they must be doing something right.
  20. And heavily supported & financially bailed out by the RFL a number of times too....
