  1. I think todays result was relatively expected, we actually got more points then I thought we would. Time to regroup and move on to our next game, good effort Barrow against a team with a massive budget.
  2. I think from Barrows point of view on Forster he needs surgery that will keep him out for 4 months. We have achieved our aim of staying up so this way we get him back for pre season next year
  3. Well this week brings up Leigh away. The hardest game of the year and they are in red hot form, so hard to see us getting anything to be honest. I see James Duerden is in line the return for Barrow this weekend against Leigh and looks like we might rest one or two. Play like we did in the second half at home then you never know we might get a result.
  4. Just seen a video Barrow have put up and in the background at training was James Duerden. His ban for steroids ran out at the start of the 2022 season. Could we see a return of Duerden this season ?
  5. Going to be a tough game this weekend against a Widnes side I expect to be a lot better then when they visited Craven Park. Widnes have won the last 5 games and we have won the last 4, so both teams are in form heading into the match. The bookies have us down as slight favourites at -4. I’m going to go for a Barrow win 28-20, Ritson first try scorer and Langtree MOTM. What are peoples thoughts on the game ?
  6. A touch of class from your fans last night coming down and putting money into the club ! Going to be a good game today and looking forward to it.
  7. Yeah Bradford have been going through some rough times of late so that is definitely going to affect the number of travelling fans. In terms of the game I’m hopeful for a win which will most likely cement our playoff place. I’ll go for a Barrow win 36-10, Miloudi First try scorer and hopefully 2,500+ fans.
  8. Cracking result. Being 32-12 down with about 20 minutes to go I thought we were down and out so fair play to every single one of them players ! Roll on Bradford at home
  9. Big result that ! Hopefully a Barrow win tommorow followed by a win against Bradford.
  10. Another brilliant player to have for next year. Again well done to the board for getting this over the line.
  11. Going to be a very tough game this weekend, especially with the hot weather expected. They gave us a very tough game at Craven park. I hope with Miloudi, Langtree and S.Toal playing this weekend we will have too much for Sheffield. I’m going for a 28-18 win for Barrow .
  12. I know exactly who you mean I couldn’t agree more with yourself.
  13. Forster is a brilliant player to have on board for next year ! Well done Barrow for keeping him.
  14. Looking forward to Sundays game. Whitehaven away was a tough game and we actually lost the second. Although the weather conditions were shocking. If we are wanting a top 6 finish a win on Sunday is a must really. I’m going for Barrow 30-16 Whitehaven, Stack first try scorer and crowd 3k+. I just think we will have too much for them. That being said I have been wrong before and Whitehaven are playing better at the moment.
  15. An amazing result away at York, well done Barrow. A brilliant reaction after the performance against Halifax. This was most definitely not a game I ever thought we would win
  16. Looks like Barrow are putting in a decent performance this week after the disappointing result on monday. Leading 12-6 at halftime. COYR.
  17. We have again one of the best teams of the year available for tonight, we are just missing Langtree. I think Halifax are there for the taking
  18. Good to see early recruitment by Barrow, also in an area we have struggled at times this year. Will be a good signing ! Bullock would be a cracking signing and he still comes down to a few Barrow games, I guess you never know
  19. Going to be a cracking game, looks like Halifax had a hard game against Whitehaven and there wasn’t much in it. I think we could just win this one, I’m going to go for Barrow 28-24 Halifax with Ritson first try scorer and Miloudi MOM
  20. Well that’s absolutely brilliant news ! What a signing Sammut has been for us this year. Bring on Fax on Monday
  21. Sammut has been playing in Australia and I believe he is unavailable for this game, Carter and Johnson have stepped up a few times this year and down great.
  22. I don’t see any reason on current form why we can’t end up in 6th. I think we should get wins against Widnes (Bash) Whitehaven (H) Dewsbury (H), London (A) Bradford (H) Then for push games in my opinion are Sheffield (A) Newcastle (A) and Halifax (H). So I think our points from the season will range from Minimum 29 to 37 maximum and I think that should be enough to see us in the top 6. Although I don’t think financially getting in the top 6 will gain us much money. Unless someone can tell me differently? As I would imagine it would be an away game against Leigh or Featherstone where we would be hammered. No matter how we finish in the table we have had a cracking season and the club are doing lots of brilliant things so hats off to the Board, Steve Neale and all the staff.
  23. A result I definitely didn’t expect as a Barrow fan. Hoping that you stay up as we need all the Cumbrian clubs up in the Championship. Had a good laugh with some of your supporters and even went for a pint at the pub after the match with them. Good luck for the rest of the season.
  24. Brilliant performance by Barrow and I think we took 300-400 fans and often were louder then there fans, cracking performance by Barrow COYR.
  25. Well we have just set off on the 9:50 train and I would say about 120 barrow fans just on the first train. Also we have cars traveling and have a coach on the way up as well looking forward to a good game.
