Seems from reading this thread that I've picked a competitive game to go to in Sheffield vs Barrow today!

Then you had better get there early Tommy to ensure admission, if others are of the same mind as you.

Do enjoy, and have some tranquillisers ready for your American collegues who will be gasping at all these idiots with no helmets and armour.

It's chuffing roasting in Sheffield and the Eagles are 22-12 up at half time.

Good game isn't it, the tries either side of HT probably done enough for Sheffield

Take that back after 3 on the bounce from Barrow

Widnes 20 Newcastle 12 at HT. Pretty decent game considering the conditions, albeit quite a high error count, with both teams conceding tries from kick-offs going dead.

Fair play Eagles for Wakeying that one.  Playoffs decided,  alot of dead games to get through now   Everyone below Barrow can clear out for next year.  Although looking at Bulls fixtures Mark might not get to be the manager for next season. 

Edit: In my bitterness should point out and praise Barrow for a fantastic season.  Fully expect them to pump us next week in front of a great home crowd.

Never seen anything like that. 24 points in 20 minutes. 

It's not quite dead yet but it Barrow beat Bradford next week it well and truly is.

Let me Guess was it the Jarred Samutt show?

Listening to the radio commentary he was mentioned a lot in the 1st, not sure what happened in the 2nd, but you can’t turn around a score line like that single handed.

Not at all to be honest. 

If there is an assumption Sammut is carrying our season that's a massive misrepresentation. He's won us a few games but there's been much more when he hasn't.

Exciting game at Widnes. Home team was 26-10 up, but Newcastle fought back to 26-26 against 12 man Widnes. Drop goal with 3 minutes to go for Widnes made it 27-26, then a last minute try made it 33-26.

We seem to have reached the point where the current rules mean Adam Lawton is just too tall to play professional rugby league. He was sent off for a head tackle against a falling player, which I believe the referee doesn't have much option about. Problem is there is essentially absolutely nothing he can do to avoid it - if you're 6 ft 6 or whatever and you tackle someone nearly a foot shorter around the waist and they slip going into the tackle, there really is nothing you can do.
