Doncaster RLFC entertain Barrow Raiders in round 9 of the Kingstone Press Championship on Sunday 4th May (3pm).

The match will see the Keepmoat Stadium play host to Rovers Day, an initiative scheme as part of Club Doncaster, the club are urging supporters to wear r and you can find out full details about the day and special events by clicking here.

The Dons have made a fine start to the season, sitting third in the league table, with six wins from their opening eight matches.  A win for Doncaster against Barrow could see the Dons move up to second place in the league, should Featherstone Rovers suffer defeat to league leaders Leigh Centurions.

Doncaster are looking for their third straight win at the Keepmoat Stadium as the club look to make it a fortress for the rest of the campaign, following back to back victories over Featherstone and North Wales Crusaders.

Last time out in the Championship, the Dons produced a memorable comeback away win on Easter Monday against rivals Sheffield Eagles, recording a 34-42 victory, despite trailing 28-12 at the break.

The Dons welcome back Paul Cooke, Stewart Sanderson and Mike Emmett to the squad, after the trio were rested for the Tetley’s Challenge Cup defeat at Warrington last Sunday.

Barrow in stark contrast to the high flying Dons sit bottom of the Championship, with just one win and one bonus point from their opening eight matches.

The Raiders’ only victory in the competition came back on 2nd March, when like the Dons, they defeated Sheffield at Owlerton Stadium. 

Former St Helens and Great Britain scrum half Bobbie Goulding replaced Anthony Murray as head coach at the end of March and despite yet to record a win, performances have begun to improve for the Cumbrian outfit.

Barrow come into the game with a rested team, with the Raiders eliminated in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup, resulting in having last weekend off.

There will be a limited edition programme for the match programme to celebrate Rovers Day!  Car parking and a matchday programme can be purchased for £5 for more information click here.

Tickets for the match are available from the Keepmoat Stadium ticket office in person or by calling 01302762576 or you can purchase tickets online by clicking here.
