Championship / C1 Round Up

On Thursday, Barrow Raiders defeat Widnes Vikings 38-16.  The depleted visitors were left holding onto the Cumbrian outfit throughout, as on-loan half-back Jamie Rooney starred. Seven goals and a last minute try completed a personal 18-point haul for the Wakefield-owned star.

On the same night, Halifax continued to struggle to live up to head coach Matt Calland’s billing as the best in the Championship ‘by a country mile’, as Sheffield completed a double over them at the Don Valley Stadium.  Hepworth, Stringer, Exton, Thackeray, Ropati, Howieson and Mills crossed in a 38-24 win.
