  1. Does anyobe have a link to this rule please within the RFL guidlines the community club compensation scheme And are the figures right.. quoted above. Thanks
  2. Agree they were decent in parts. The 2nd try down the popular side was a very well constructed and executed move. Duffy MOTM no chance in my opinion. Singleton ran great lines in 1st half Cresswell safe as houses Stack played really well when on D.Toal was 1000% better than last week. Bit concerning Jono caught out for one try and two breaks. Maybe get him back in the middle All the dual reg went well. McBain Saunders and Hopkins all played well again forwards wise and Joe Crarey pinched a try which was very Andy ellis like which is encouraging. I think Chris Thorman with his small squad in our next friendly will be looking very closely at some of the dual reg lads. So matbe get the better 3/4 signed.... otherwise a risk of losing them. Especially in lieu of the great spomsors night. Last thing we want is to get 10 games into the season and a play town and they come back to haunt us. Again only an opinion
  3. Charnocks a tool and will get knocked down a peg or two in that league. All amateurs played well and didnt look out of place. Agree Tyson was the best of the bunch. Although Barrow played better when there were more trialists/amateurs on. So they all I think deserve a bit more time. I think by the sounds of the Jewitt situation its starting to smell a little hocky..... Walne was very good today.
  4. Is relegation not self explainatory... some were garbage. Walker will do very well in championship. Good good player
  5. I think "lost" is a strong statement. Im sure plenty waved him off... signed as an inspirational, fast goal kicking half back, was a slow cumbersome 13 at a push. Average kicking %at best
  6. Loxham? Not for me although a lovely fella and keen enough just poor game awareness for me. The rest sound good. Again... unsure about tyson Is a 3rd hooker required... johston could fill in there.
  7. Are there any Furness lads locally that could accompany them ?
  8. Him and potentially Shane Toal on the other wing..... pace to burn. Great signing. Hopefully get a bagful in league 1
  9. Thats what I was I was getting at
  10. I stand corrected. Maybe an unfair assumption (hands up)
  11. Watts puara Jr. I just say Jr as my spelling is as bad as the announcers were at the start of the year. I agree though with comments the board are doing excellent work, its just my opinion. I dont know if they are not trying to sign smith and stack. Is the season of speculation and guesswork on whats happening. I think ritson will he a revelation and would love to see him utilised as a running half and carter or dalimore as the rudder.
  12. Great news to get signatures on paper and in the main really happy, but a large majority have missed large parts of this and last season with huge injuries .... is this not a bit more of a risk we have the same injury issue as this year. Duffy must have played maybe 10-12 games in 2 seasons? Is this not a risk On the resignatures mossop duffy and morrow surely are a risk... i bet theyve only played 50 games between them all over last two seasons... Im worried the club are setting themselves up for a fall... again (see hock/humes injuries, and games ratio past 2 seasons) Again just an opinion... would the priority not be stack smith etc. To build a strong spine to accompany cresswell forster and mr jr?
  13. Travel is massive .... thats why Barrow struggles to attract as many people from the Lancashire pool historically.
  14. Theres plenty around. Depends what position.... look at the (Barrow) town and county trials.... plenty there

    Totally agree with cresswell. Forgot about him and Carter. I thought Johnstone had left.my bad Brad is a Prop at leeds. Perry is his brother. The centre at town.

    Good coach but he has a much bigger pool to pick from in the oldham M62 catchment area. Thats always been an issue with costs and player recruitment. We have the A595 corridor Its finding a blend of cumbrians (as in living in cumbria) plus I would assume 4/5 travelling lads from lancashire... plus whatever is worth promoting from the 19s alongside Ford. With Haven going up most likely I would see if the more south lakelend contingent of kelly,wilkinson and dowsett were interested Plus if you put feelers out for Singleton, Marwood and Bolton from Workington.. would also say Walsh but I think Ford fills that gap. That could replace some of the inevitable exedous and also cut costs on paying travelljng fees/petrol monies or higher salaries? They have all shown they can handle league 1. 1. Bolton -Askam/Town 2. Ford -Walney 3. Singleton -Barrow Island/Town 4.Star Amean 5. S Toal - Ulv 6. Spend salary cap - would love to see ritson play there. 7. Marwood... Barrow Island/Town although more a 9 i know 8. Spend Salary Cap 9.Dowsett - Askam/Haven 10.E Kelly- Millom/Haven 11. D Toal - Ulv 12. J Smith 13. Wilkinson Ulv/Haven 14.Crellin -millom 15. T Hopkins -Askam/BARLA 16.C.Tyrell (if interested) Millom/St H trial 17. Puara 18. Saunders - ulv/BARLA Then Ideally Joe Bullock for half the season post knee op would be ideal Plus blood another 3/4 under 19s and spend the rest of the salary cap on the two biggest front rowers you could afford. Think Ritson Riley Stack amd Walker will all be back up the coast Susino is off, but couldnt expect less. Starts looking promising than some of the poorer signings (in my opinion from what ive seen) Loxham Duffy Charnock Hulme Spedding Could all go for me Dallimore ... brilliant one week. Awful the next... no idea what I would do as coach or chairman for him

    Its like shopping on christmas eve.....
  18. B4RR0W


    No but its commitment vs pay

    Who's the options ?? Realistically for cost and local player knowlege (Of which im sure we will have to utilise for a high % of next years squad?) Or would someone alongside Paul be better and transition. I think with funding cuts Pauls knowlege of league 1 could or should still be used? Also for those players, who may have to come in from amateur levels aside from pride and playing for the town, what is the pull vs playing amateur.
  20. Nothing wrong but with securing your future but think of it as any other business. ?? Imagine if the coach propsed this to secure his future by doing something similar... .
  21. Another one is referenced in the story. Im glad the club are getting rid of people who dont want to be there.

    York at home

    Finally some sense on a forum... ... halleluja!!
  23. Wigan at home was the best spectacle down Craven Park in a long time. The fubds for the players helped, but the coaches and main band of players were local. Harrison Nixon centre wing would stand up to most of the lower SL teams now, Same for Broadbent.... didnt drop a thing One of the hidden gems was unearthed in Dave Armi who went onto better things Catic was class but bonkers Saying that we bought some dogs... (see michael smith/weisner) It was great times but i think with the current chairmain it will happen again.... but maybe in 5 years..... I reckon he has a cunning plan
  24. Outstanding player but I doubt would drop to league one. Would be a great signing for a lot of top club
  25. Really. Ah..... my eyesight and general awareness must have been way off. My bad
