should hopefully be quite a few going up. it's not like we've got to be up early for a 6:30 pm K/O, and most people will have the following day off.

Should be a good test for both teams, a lot more even than the NRC.

Have a good trip up and buy a few pints in the Raiders Bar inside the ground.

I think you'll see a different Barrow performance from the one at The Shay in te NR Cup. We had a few missing that day and the higher standard took a few by surprise. By all accounts, the team had their fortunes read by the coach and things have been on the up since then.

Zeb Luisi landed in the UK today and is poised to go straight into Saturday's squad. It's also rumoured that Ned Catic could also be in the UK by then, but I think Saturday's match might just be too soon after a 24hr plane journey.

Will he have had enough time though to get to know his team mates & the relevant moves/plays?

Even taking into account that you had a few missing, Id be pretty upset if we didnt come away from Craven Park without the 3pts
supporting Halifax through thick & thin!

Granted, Luisi will have only had a couple of training sessions, but he's a top class player and should slot-in pretty comfortably - maybe on the wing to begin with.

Regarding the match and result, you can completely forget our performance at your place. That was the wake up call the players needed and thankfully they got it very early in the season - and have heeded it.

There's no way you're going to push our pack around the way you did Widnes - especially at Craven Park. You'll also find that we have a lot of fire power in the centres and a lot of pace on the wings and in the halves. Behind all that is Broadbent at fullback, who very rarely puts a foot wrong.

There's no doubt you'll go into the match as favourites, but if you play like you did against Widnes, we'll score more points than they did.
