Premier Sports to show Barrow v Whitehaven RL game
Published at 11:26, Friday, 08 June 2012
Whitehaven have welcomed news they will make their Premier Sports live TV debut in a big Cumbrian derby next month.
Barrow Raiders will host Haven on Thursday, July 19, in a match brought forward by three days. Haven had been due to be out of action for three full weeks next month and that will now be cut to 18 days.
Chief executive Barry Richardson said: “Because Rochdale changed our fixture from July 15 to the 29th, we would have had a three-week break in fixtures.
“We will also now have an extra three days’ recovery before we go to Rochdale. I know it is only a few days, but it will help us.
“It’s a local derby against Barrow and it should be a good one for fans. Hopefully there will be a good turnout, but there is also now the option of watching on Premier Sports.
“The Barrow game is a big one for us, and we shouldn’t forget we’ve won four of our last five games.
“I think with this squad we can beat any team. Confidence is there, and team spirit is excellent.
“We are looking to kick on for the rest of the season, which is a very important one for every team in this league.”
Barrow beat Haven 42-28 at the Recre two weeks ago, Liam Campbell scoring a hat-trick.
The RFL also confirmed that Workington Town’s clash with Doncaster at the Keepmoat will be shown live on Premier Sports on Thursday, July 26.
