Leeds eliminate League 1's Barrow

Leeds Rhinos 72-10 Barrow Raiders

Joel Moon scored a first-half hat-trick to set Leeds Rhinos on their way to a thumping 72-10 victory over Barrow Raiders in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup sixth round.

The Raiders have won all seven of their Kingstone Press League 1 fixtures in 2017 but they had no answer to the 13-try Rhinos as they booked a quarter-final date with Featherstone Rovers.

Leeds raced into a 22-0 lead courtesy of two Moon tries either side of efforts from Matt Parcell and Ash Handley.

Barrow appeared to have turned the tide when Luke Cresswell crossed in the corner and Rhinos prop Keith Galloway was sin-binned for an off-the-ball challenge in the build-up.


But Moon completed his hat-trick and Ryan Hall went the full length of the field to put Leeds out of sight at half-time.

Handley scored the first try of the second half and further scores from Stevie Ward, Liam Sutcliffe and Rob Burrow made it 54-4.

Jarrad Stack gave the travelling supporters another moment to savour but Burrow, Parcell and Keith Galloway all went over to complete a comprehensive Rhinos victory.
