It was a points-fest in the third round of League 1 action!

Workington are top of the table after easing to a 44-16 win away at North Wales.

Matty Henson scored two of the eight tries that Town ran in overall.

Barrow remain in hot pursuit of the league leaders after they ran out 29-6 victors at Hunslet.

Tee Ritson bagged a double as the Raiders extending their winning start to the new season.

Rochdale made sure they kept up with the early pace-setters with an eventful 43-36 win away at Keighley.

Fuifui Moimoi crashed over for his first Hornets try, while Shaun Ainscough added a brace, include the game-clinching score five minutes from time.

Doncaster ran in 12 tries at home to winless West Wales.

Jason Tali, Brandon Douglas and Aaron York all crossed twice, with Matty Beharrell adding 18 points from the boot.

And finally, London Skolars picked up their first win of the season away at Coventry.

The Bears led 26-22 heading into the final quarter, but four tries in 12 second half minutes proved enough for a Skolars victory at the Butts Park Arena.
