Difference been barrow had a ten day rest bulls had a 3 day turn around. Also the reason bradford picked the team they did has a more important game against Batley in the league on Sunday why make them play 3 times in a week when you can rest them. We can now concentrate on the league with no extra games overall let's see who made the right choice. This could come back and bite barrow your currently in a relegation scrap although you need the winning mentality do you really want more games?

If it makes you feel better, but I thought your travelling fans were a bit embarrassed,

Being picky but I think Toulouse is Sunday.

We can't fill out with the 19s as they arent technically barrows players. They'd have to sign contracts to be able to play.

Think he's banned apparently Carter and puara are starting halves 

Carter is cup tied as in Ben White. 

Will likely be Johnston and Puara.

Could they not play as trialists?

Judging by Cresta's interview I think he intends to field a decent team. Dally is suspended so I think he intends to play Jake Carter, presumably if he's fit. From the commentary it seemed that Carter had some rough treatment.

I think carter took a bit of a bashing so I don’t think he’ll be playing Wednesday. Crestas post match interview stated that Johnstone and Puara will be the halves with Jono playing big minutes at 9.

Carter can't play because he played for Whitehaven against Oldham hence he was unavailable for Bradford.

workington have opted out of next years 1895  cup .should barrow do the same? we have precious few games as it is.its a balance between much needed revenue and avoiding injuries.i would opt to play just to see a championship team at craven park.

The problem could be an unfavourable draw. A getting a team out on Wednesday evening for a trip to London could be problematic . A share of the gate would not even compensate for or the expense of travel. There are no travel grants to defray the cost.

I think it would be daft to drop out. 

If we managed to get a championship side at home and we are winning games we could get a good crowd which will be invaluable income.

Barrow have most definitely opted in. The first round is a weekend and will provide much needed revenue. We already are dropping from 27 games to 20 games and are planning 4 friendlies instead of 3 to help plug the financial gap.

If we stay injury free then there is no reason why we can't have a decent run in the cup. Doncaster were a last minute try away from beating Sheffield in the quarter final who went on to win it. There's no reason why a decent Championship One club couldn't go all the way
