A hard fought 14-6 victory over Newcastle Thunder saw Barrow Raiders record their third Betfred Championship win in a row at a mud-soaked Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium.

In front of 1,744 supporters, Bradd Crellin’s try separated the sides at half-time, before winger Tee Ritson crossed the whitewash in the second half. Ryan Shaw added six points from the boot.

The visitors, who had Mitch Clark sent off for a high tackle, did manage to grab a late consolation through Gideon Boafo, but Paul Crarey’s side saw out the victory in difficult conditions.
