Will you be there?


Recommended Posts

When we played them at home we just didn’t perform at all and we could have got a draw right at the end. It will be difficult for sure, they are a really big and strong team and will certainly have a size advantage but hopefully we don’t let them get a roll on and don’t give too many penalties away. I hope we’ve saved our best till the last game, you can do it boys!! UTT

I've watched them four times now and three times i've thought they were awful for long periods of the game and the other when they beat us at Donny they were average BUT they keep winning and they can score from anywhere against the run of play.  I can't call it...our defense and kicking need to be solid.

I feel for Keighley who have now been beaten after the hooter two weeks running!

Doncaster have some big lads for sure but we were always told “they can’t run without their legs” and “the bigger they are the harder they fall”.  So our defence has to be spot on if we are going to win. Don’t let their big lads get any steam up.  I’m sure we can beat them but we will find out on Sunday!!!

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

This is a massive game for the forwards this week they have done it tough all season due to injuries and size but I'm sure the lads will rise to the occasion and get the job done 

We could really do with gabe back this week to guide us around the park and get Brad back to his natural position in the wing 

Very nervous for the game already

My nerves are shreaded. I wasn't nervous for the Keighley game because I was expecting to lose, there was 6 of us sitting having a pint before the game unI near silence. You would think we were going to the gallows and not DP. Not one of us was cinfudent. Oh ye of little faith eh. 🙄 It's just what 58 yrs of watching Town does to you. 😱 Just hoping we get a decent crowd in and make it the 14th man, I noticed there was only just over 1100 at the Keighley v Donny game. Which must have been disappointing, but it's better than 985 I suppose 🤔🙄 UTT. 💙💙💙

I think its because we had a second chance against Keighley with the nerves and expectation but this is the big one, and there will be a very big crowd as there's a buzz in the air. I even know some Haven lads coming down to watch as they want our derby back on the calendar and know how good it will be to have all 3 cumbria teams in the championship, so fair play to them even though they deny they will cheer us on lol.

UTT!

Probably nervous because I've watched us in 9 finals and we've only won 2.😱

I'm a Barrow supporter and I can't wait to watch this on Our League !!!!! 

I feel your nerves having been in this boat 4 years ago when we played Haven for the same prize.

The atmosphere at Craven Park that day was incredible, never felt so tense at a match !

Good luck Town 🙂
