Leeds comfortably dispatch of League One Raiders

Leeds Rhinos recorded 13 tries as they comprehensively dispatched of Barrow Raiders 72-10, booking their place in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

Joel Moon completed a first half hat-trick with Ryan Hall, Matt Parcell and Ash Handley opening up a 32-4 half time lead, Luke Cresswell with Barrow’s reply.

Handley completed his brace early in the second half before Stevie Ward took Leeds over the 40-point mark with 50 minutes played.

Liam Sutcliffe continued the rout and Rob Burrow came off the interchanges bench to score as the Rhinos surpassed a half century.

The League One Raiders didn’t give up the fight however and moved into double figures through Jarrad Stack’s try and Karl Ashall’s touchline conversion.

But Burrow and Parcell completed their respective braces before Keith Galloway went over for the final score late on in a wholly professional display.
