Next season

Recommended Posts

Now that this season is no more do we assume League 1 will be a 12 team comp. with Ottowa adding to the current 11 sides?Could be an interesting league with a revitalised Rochdale,Newcastle and the unknown quantity of Ottowa competing with the Raiders.

Going to be a tough league to get out off. Rochdale throwing money around, workington will strengthen again. Newcastle will not be shy in the transfer market neither will doncaster. Ottawa an unknown but will be more than competitive. Key for us is to keep the travelling players we have Forster, Jewitt & Walne especially if we can keep hold of the pack and maybe add to it we should be in position to challenge again.

I have every faith in the board doing all they can in the best interests of barrow RLFC. However , What impact does this season ending decision have on team as a whole ie the players and coaching contracts, Wages , furloughed % contributions. 
are players still furloughed, are they still registered with barrow , can /do we re negotiate contracts for the next season ( and Can the club afford it with the greatly reduced income). 
any updates for a nosey but genuine supporter would be appreciated. 👍

It's ok saying all this about teams throwing money around but was that for a season where promotion was a must?? How are these teams going to react after the lay off, have some thrown all their eggs in the basket banking on promotion? No one budgeted for Covid so unfortunately some teams may struggle next season.. Unless players play for nothing next year as they have been paid for not playing this year!  << Haha.. 

I think the strongest teams will be the ones who have adapted to the situation and created other income sources like Barrow have oh and the ones with sugar daddies!

Think it will be an interesting league, I think Ottawa are taking a different approach Toronto by the sounds of it, looking towards more Canadian players, saying that they will be a force, theres a number of clubs that could end up with promotion
