Featherstone Rovers bounced back from their shock home defeat against Doncaster by trouncing outclassed Championship rivals Barrow 60-6 at New Craven Park on Sunday.

There was never any danger of Ryan Sheridan’s men slipping up in Cumbria.

They led 22-0 at half-time on their way to an impressive 11-try victory.

It completed an easy double for Rovers who hammered Barrow 58-12 at Big Fellas Stadium in March.

Andy Kain’s fifth minute try set the ball rolling.

Willl Sharp bagged three tries, Andy Bostock and Lamont Bryan each scored two and Ian Hardman, Liam Finn and on-loan Vince Mellars also crossed for Rovers who handed a first-team debut to former York City Knights prop Jake Joint.

Finn kicked eight goals to finish with a 20-point haul.

Barrow’s only points came from Liam Campbell’s 42nd minute try that Kurt Haggerty goaled.
