I as a Hull KR fan would love him to play at Craven Park, whatever this kid has done, he is a proper baller, the best we have. He is miles better that the current fullback.

Come on he is a a legend in disguise

There are rumours that London will never get back into Super League

Barba has a number of sub par performances and that was at the peak of fitness. He also took a while to get fit for saints if memory serves and that was in his prime years.

He’s a high risk signing being 32 next year with almost 2 years out of a full time environment.

I certainly think it’s too big a risk for my team trinity to entertain.

It’s a risk Leigh may have to take. Could get a few class games from him or could back fire. Guess we will see, that’s if he does sign for a SL club.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Great player who doesn't have a distinguished off field private life record. But that's up to the courts to decide not disingenuous posters looking for a bite.

Look forward to Leighs attempt at 11th. place, however some fans are suggesting over on the "other side" that licensing is coming back.

Last time I heard about Barba he was driving trucks for a living. With that perfect lifestyle he should be able to fit straight back in to a SuperLeague role. Hopefully he has put his sins behind him and can make a come back but he did his best to knock his bridges down behind him last time. I believe that people can be rehabilitated but at 32 he does not have long left to do it in a rugby capacity.

In all honesty, he's better left alone.

That Journo is about as reliable as an umbrella in a gale force!
How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

It's being reported that Ben Barber won't even be able to secure a work visa. I will look for the link.
