Kingstone Press Championships Teams of the Week

Kingstone Press Championships Performance of the Week – Barrow Raiders

Barrow Raiders climbed off the bottom of the Kingstone Press Championship table as coach Bobbie Goulding made a successful return to playing.

Goulding, 42, played for the first time in nine years. He helped his side beat Rochdale Hornets 38-18 and move above Swinton Lions at the bottom.

Goulding said: “I thought my forwards were outstanding and really laid the foundations.

“The two boys we signed from Salford, Michael Platt and Jason Walton, were unbelievable.

“Now we need to keep our feet on the ground and be consistent.

“We need to go on a run like Whitehaven and Keighley have been doing.”


Kingstone Press Try of the Week – Ryan Brierley (Leigh Centurions)

Leigh Centurions scrum-half Ryan Brierley finished a set play in fine style to register his side’s fourth try in a 28-16 victory over Workington Town.

Centurions coach Paul Rowley said: “It was a move we’ve done many times. We need to be nice and intricate around the ruck, with three tight passes creating space and Brierley supporting up the middle.

“When it’s executed well it’s a pretty special try. It takes a lot of skill and a lot of teamwork. The move started about 60 metres out, and Ryan had 40 metres to go to score. It was good to watch.”
