Barrow forward out for season

Barrow will be without forward Martin Ostler for the rest of the season after x-rays confirmed he has broken a leg.

Ostler, 29, was sent for further x-rays by club staff after being told only his ankle had been x-rayed previously.

A club source said: “Unfortunately, for both the player and the club, what was thought originally to be deep bruising and ligament damaged was confirmed as a broken fibula. Martin is due to have the leg put in plaster today.”

Barrow host Halifax on Thursday, with the winner going straight through to the Championship Grand Final, and thus satisfying the on-field criteria to apply for a Super League licence in 2012.
