Barrow showed up to their fixture with only 14 players, meaning they only had 1 substitute. This is the sort of thing that happens at U12’s, not a Championship fixture. It’s not even a one off, the Raiders only had 15 fit players available for last Sunday's game at Featherstone Rovers, with former player Chris Fleming coming out of retirement and Barrow Island amateur Ben Garner joining to boost the team.

What an embarrassment, yet some people repeatedly claim we should have a Super League club up there.

It is you (plural) that is the permanent embarrassment in this group. A part time team having to travel across the Atlantic, with work commitments, expense and entry problems so that gobbins like you can sneer at them.

Garbage, Barrow have an horrendous injury list and a couple of players with visa problems.
They also don’t have a sugar daddy like Toronto who probably spend 2 to 3 more than Barrow.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.

I don’t agree that Barrow are a laughing stock at all. However it’s worrying that a team in the Championship can’t get enough players for a full team.

I would of been happy for the Toronto Wolfpack to join Super League from the off, but you and your multiple rlfans accounts said they need to earn their place like everyone else, for that to happen semi professional clubs need to travel to Toronto.

Last time I checked Featherstone wasn’t across the Atlantic from Barrow.

That so called sugar daddy paid for Barrow’s travel costs, they should be very grateful.

It’s very worrying. If this happened to Toronto, Toulouse, West Wales Raiders or any other expansion club there would be a whole host of Leigh fans (or the same one under multiple usernames) calling for them to be kicked out of the league. Now I don’t think that should happen to Barrow but perhaps a fine for not having the full matchday 17.

Exactly, you’ve just proved my point, it’s garbage isn’t it for a team to be funded by the opposition to play a domestic game on another continent.
