Barrow Raiders open their Betfred Championship campaign this weekend as Sheffield Eagles visit the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium.

The two sides met in round two of the Championship back in 2019, with the Eagles edging the Raiders on the hooter, winning 24-22.

Sunday’s game will be the Raiders first back in the second division following their promotion from Betfred League 1.

Preparations for the game have included two pre-season friendly victories over Workington Town and Newcastle Thunder. A third friendly, against North Wales Crusaders, was postponed due to a combination of injuries and positive Covid-19 cases within the visitors’ camp.
