    After that disappointing result and performance against a very good Halifax side on Monday perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised.

    The top 5 teams in the Championship look to be a class apart from the rest..to date the only defeats suffered by the top 5 against lower ranked teams

    Being Halifax's home defeat by Widnes(8-9) and Batley's loss at Bradford(20-21)..both by the narrowest of margins.To date the Raiders have only lost to

    Teams above them ..hopefully they can bounce back at York and break the sequenceย  but it's a big ask.

    Add it to the list Pete๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    I know he was sin binned for shall we say his involvement in the incident, but is an H I A assessment not required after taking repeated Blow's to the headย 

    Good point George

  3. Iโ€™m a little unsure how you get to the fact that he was play acting,it was quite clear he took at least a couple blows to the head from what I saw on the replay if not more.

    When it calmed down he took himself away from the situation and had a sit down to get some treatment.

    Iโ€™m more concerned about his poor tackling technique,he looks a bit of a โ€œgrabberโ€ to me and easily fended off.

    It was a Fax penalty because it was quite clearly a high tackle,why the referee never blew the whistle sooner and gave that decision is unknown to me.If he did it may have stopped two reds and a yellow card being shown.

    Easy to say in hindsight though and we all make mistakes.

    It won't happen but Miloudi should be put before the disciplinary and also sanctioned by Barrow. Play acting like we saw last night is nothing more than cheating and ifย  we turn a blind eye to it we will be on the same slippery road as football.ย

  5. Iโ€™m interested to know other peoples thoughts on wether the Raiders can maintain that top 6 spot,the season is about halfway through now and we are sitting sixth.

    We have had some fantastic wins away from home this season which has been an Achilles heal for many Raiders teams in the past.

    Will the result against London let us down,can we go to Sheffield and win?

    Certainly going to be an exciting second half of the season,I just hope we can keep the momentum going๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    I think its a shame that it isn't ran by combined Town and Haven tbh. I know its all about resources and manpower etc, but it would have been an ideal opportunity as well as identifying young talent to also use it as a platform to integrate our local amateur coaches and give them additional training skills to take back to their own clubs, as my mantra has always been if you improve the coaching you'll improve the players!

    In regards to Town and Haven, they both need reserve teams, but there isn't the player pool in this area at present to support 2 additional sides and forget about an Academy as it would decimate the youth leagues and have an adverse affect on the local amateur game which is already on life support mode.

    The answer could be to run a combined reserve side if a league could be found for them to play in, but I have my doubts as to whether it would work as its been tried before. I mean which club gets priority if a hooker/scrum half etc from both clubs needs game time?

    No easy answers unfortunately and the RFL don't help as they seem devoid of ideasย  ย 

    I know that Barrow have the Furness Raiders who play in a college league during the winter.

    Cresta holds coaching sessions for local coaches who want to get involved in a JETS programme that possibly leads into the Furness side.

    This could be an option for Town and Haven?

    I think Barrow have done tremendously well in a short space of time.

    They seem to have formulated a plan and stuck to it rigidly. But there are fundamental differences between our clubs, the main one for me is that Barrow is a bigger place for a start, its population is more than Workington and Whitehaven combined and they have roughly the same number of amateur clubs to pull players from, but no competition within a 90 minute drive.

    That's a huge advantage when attracting players to a club!

    I know I'm going to get shot down for it, but I honestly don't think there's room for 2 professional clubs in West Cumbria and if this area wants a team which can compete at the top half of the Championship then the answer is to have one club.

    ย 

    Iโ€™m a bit out of touch so apologies if this has been mentioned before.

    What are your thoughts on Newcastle Thunder and Hull FC dipping their toes into West Cumbria?

    Potentially lambs to the slaughter today may not bother going if we are just going to give the game up

    I hope you went? What a game it was,we definitely deserved something from the game.As mentioned already the players and coaches deserve a massive round of applause for their efforts today.

    Kudos to the Leigh fans who travelled in numbers today also๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
