Barrow climb table

Barrow Raiders climbed to fourth place in the Kingstone Press League 1 table after a 44-22 win over Hemel Stags at Craven Park.

Alex Anthony went over for an early try for the Stags but Peter Lupton responded two minutes later to level the scores.

Michael Brown then crossed for Hemel's second try of the afternoon and Charlie Lawrence's second goal made it 12-6.

But back came Barrow and Craig Briscoe and James Duerdan scored tries and Josh Ward added two goals to ensure they went into the break ahead.

Kyle Dolan crossed to extend the advantage early in the second half but Hemel rallied and Thibault Cousinie went in.

Tries from Andy Litherland and Brad Marwood stretched the Barrow lead again before Anthony went in for his second and the Stags' fourth try.

But Joe Bullock and Chris Hankinson added further tries ensured Barrow took the points as Ward took his goal tally to six.
