Hornets ease past Barrow
Mike Ratu, Paul Crook and Danny Bridge each went over for a pair of tries as Rochdale Hornets picked up their second Kingstone Press League 1 win of the season with a 48-12 triumph over Barrow.
Ratu, Crook (2) and Bridge breached the Raiders\' defence and Crook added three goals as the Hornets eased into a 22-0 lead after just 18 minutes.
Craig Briscoe then went over for the visitors eight minutes before the break with Chris Hankinson adding the extras but Rochdale hit back and James Tilley crossed on the stroke of half-time to send them into the break 28-6 up.
Dale Bloomfield and Ryan Smith then went in as Rochdale picked up from where they left off after the break and even though Briscoe scored a second try, further scores from Ratu and Bridge wrapped up the scoring.
