<p>Doncaster player coach Paul Cooke spoke to the official website after seeing his side record a 10-22 away victory at Barrow Raiders.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The victory gave Doncaster their first double of the season and see&rsquo;s them remain in third place in the Kingstone Press Championship.</p>
<p>Cooke was pleased with the win, after acknowledging how tough going to Barrow is.</p>
<p>He said: &ldquo;We started particularly well, we went through the first 11 sets really well and that laid a real marker down for the rest of the game.</p>
<p>&ldquo;They are a tough nut and obviously really enthusiastic with a man in charge who is bringing an extra four or five percent out of the players alongside him.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We had it all on, we always knew it was going to be tough, when we played them at last month they should have beaten us and that gave them a bit of confidence going into the game.</p>
<p>"We knew that they would be ready to play and we had to match that, and for large parts we did.&rdquo;</p>
