BARROW Raiders coach Paul Crarey is fuming after key half back Jamie Dallimore picked up a second one game ban within seven days.

Dallimore is set to miss tomorrow’s game with North Wales Crusaders after being given a match ban following a high tackle in the home fixture with Keighley two weeks ago.

Dallimore, a former Crusaders player, was then dealt with by the disciplinary panel following a skirmish with Dominic Brambani in the game at Hunslet on Sunday and he will now miss the away game at West Wales next weekend.

Crarey said: “From what I’ve seen on video nothing really happened between the two players. The referee didn’t give a penalty and the touch judge never flagged for any offence.

“Brambani even tapped Dalli on the head as he got up off the ground as if to suggest nothing happened. I really think it’s a poor decision, in fact a very harsh decision, as we have just got him back after injury.”

Crarey received another blow when it was learnt that new recruit Hakim Miloudi could be side-lined for a minimum of four weeks.

The French centre, in only his second game for the Raiders, came off with a wrist injury at Hunslet.

Miloudi had an operation on Thursday and he will be in a plaster cast for three weeks.

Crarey added: “It’s a blow for the lad after just two games, the same for Ryan Shaw who, likewise, only played twice before picking up a knee injury.

“Hopefully when the cast comes off it will be good news and he could be back within a week.”

With Dallimore and Miloudi ruled out, local boy Saw Dowsett is set to make his debut after being released by Whitehaven.

The former Askam starlet will probably start on the bench with Ryan Johnston and Jake Carter operating at half back.

Dowsett can cover at hooker or in the half back division.

Ryan Duffy, who missed last week’s game, will have a late fitness test before the final 17 is announced.

The game has added interest with former player and Coach Anthony Murray now in charge at Crusaders. Returning to the Welsh side is ex Raiders fans favourite Jono Smith.

Crarey said: “They are still a dangerous outfit - big and strong all round and plenty of spice thrown in with ex Barrow players. They also have a real threat in French winger Patrick Ah Van formerly with Widnes.

“We are looking forward to playing before spectators again, from all accounts there is a massive interest and the players do react to their vocal support.”
