  1. I think this subject goes beyond the confines of sport. Now I'm not a firm believer in capitalism, but even I can see this won't be allowed to go on much further. Business especially big business will force the governments hand to start lifting the restrictions. This country needs to be working irrespective of what industry to try and keep our heads above water. I can't see sporting events being included in any lifting of restrictions though.
  2. Yes we were down to 12 men, I can't remember for how long though. I'm sure it was Harold Box that got sent off, I apologise if I'm wrong. We then went up to barrow needing to win there to win the league. Happy days.
  3. There are 2 tackles that stand out for me from the 1967 cup run. The first tackle involved Mal Dixon turning round and catching Alan Hardisty running down the Bullock stand side. What an effort. Then in the cup final itself. Brian Wrigglesworth again turning round and catching undoubtably the fastest winger in the game at that time Bill Burgess, definitely a defining moment in that game.
  4. Featherstone v Barrow 1967 Challenge Cup Final. Full-Back Brian Wrigglesworth turning and catching Barrow winger Bill Burgess. a player who could catch pigeons, when he caught the ball people thought that was it he'd score, but wriggy turned and nailed him before he could get away. What a memory that is.
  5. I apologise in advance for my comments. What is wrong with everyone. I'm no Johnson lover at all, but on this he's correct in what he's doing. It's time to put things in perspective. Sadly there has been loss of life, but where was all the outcry when people have died through benefits being taken from them, and the lives lost there. Or the lives of the homeless dying on our streets or the elderly not getting looked after properly in care homes. This country can't go on either a part lockdown or a full one. How would that work. It's like Football n ow playing behind closed doors, don't the players go back into the outside world after playing those games. Absolutely bloody ludicrous. As for Rugby League, at the moment we should follow what Cheltenham has done this week. Carry on.
  6. I thought today D/R didn't quite work for us today. I'm not blaming those players for our performance. I think Sutcliffe at loose forward found it difficult to get in the game plus getting a knock early doors didn't help. Josh playing in second row for the first 20 minutes struggled with his timing of taking the pass and the set patterns, after that period he settled down and really showed up well..For some reason in Sutcliffes side of the field, we either didn't seem quick enough to move the ball or took the wrong option and went on their own. Defence at times was slow moving up, but credit to Swinton for keeping going and making us uncomfortable. Finally not the best of afternoons but it's a long season and I'd rather take our time to hit form, providing we keep winning.
  7. Well played Dewsbury. Played as a team, and everybody knew exactly what was required of them tonight. A warning to other clubs, don't think Dewsbury will rollover against you.
  8. No we don't have any players at all that will threaten anybody.
  9. Well played Barrow, at times you showed good movement of the ball, and some strong carries from your forwards. Good luck for the rest of the season.

  11. To think I thought that TWP deserved promotion after finishing top and winning the play-offs. When all they did was cheat and probably did the same from the first season.
