Just for your info Barrow beat Widnes comfortably tonight 12 - 4. Like I have said Barrow need fear no team in this comp or league, Particularly at home. I'd say Barrow are the dark horses this year and if I was a supporter of a side with a 'Favourite' tag i'd want to avoid Barrow away. Good luck for the rest of the competition. Would be nice to be meeting you in the final :D
agreed. Went to the barrow game tonight, barrow were simply the better team. I think fax fans can judge barrow on our one defeat to the fax; barrow are most definately challengers in both the league and cup this year. A away trip to craven park is a tie all teams will want to avoid.

Yeah you all came on here crowing how good you were then we spanked you and to be honest you looked clueless in attack and defence. I have no doubt Barrow away will be hard work but if we get that then so be it I still fancy us up there.

Seems Widnes backed down to Barrows blatant spoiling and bully boy tactics.

Wonder how many of the 12 points were of actual rugby playing points :roll:

Barrow were woeful and niggly, Never Threatend our line, only 2 tries they scored were down to us throwing the ball about.

If sides stand up to the head hunting and cheap shots, they'll beat them,

To be honest away wins will be difficult to come by for everyone in this league with the restraints on travelling being one of my concerns for part-time players/squads.

I agree, Barrow were dissapointing. They set their stall out very early by attacking Ben Black, a tactic they kept going for most of the game.

Fair play to them last night and well done, but I still dont fear going there. My only worry is it is in Cumbria and we dont seem to play too well in cumbria (Whitehaven), but it could be far enough away from the radioactive air to not bother us. :D

Thank you, we will. Yes it may be a tough trip up Cumbria, like it always is but realistically if we got Barrow at home everybody would be very suprised if we wernt in the draw for the next round right? Its not that you are a bad side by any means. Its just that we are a lot better.

Widnes were the team doing all the slowing down at the play the ball and were doing the niggling (because they were geting panned in the tackle) Any infringements were punished by the ref but Widnes' poor FULL TIME side are not good enough to capitalise. Widnes are lacking in the forwards, James Webster had a shocker and our back line ran them ragged all night.

Liam Harrison ran Kohe-Love ragged all night - One of their stronger defenders ?? Although Windes looked a step quicker Barrow were just far to strong and overpowered Widnes. I never saw the constant niggling or head hunting you talk about.

Like ive said - Don't look to deep into your win or judge Barrow by 1 game. Lets wait until the end of the season.

Good luck for the remainder of the season - I look forward to some good games against you :D

You lot giving Gaz Broadbent was a complete waste of time to - He is by far the best full back outside Super League and would get in any team in The Championship.


you supporting a different team now Brew? :wink:
supporting Halifax through thick & thin!

Barrows 2 tries were both scored off the back of some prolonged pressure. Both excellent tries.
