League 1 round-up: Miloudi scores on Barrow debut, Workington top of the pile & Hunslet edge North Wales

There’s a Cumbrian flavour about the top of League 1 after the opening two rounds.

Workington extended their winning start to the new season with a commanding 50-16 victory at home to London Skolars.

Brad Holroyd, formerly of St Helens’ academy, bagged a hat-trick at Derwent Park. Alex Young also crossed in either half for Town.

Barrow brushed aside Keighley, one of the off-season favourites for promotion, to make it two wins from two to start the new season.

Jarrad Stack crossed twice in their 40-18 win, as did France international Hakim Miloudi on his Raiders debut.
