Barrow reach Northern Rail Cup Final
Two tries from Andy Ellis helped Barrow book their place in the Northern Rail Cup final with a 16-10 win over Featherstone in the last four.
Ellis touched down once in each half to give the Cumbrians the edge, while Darren Holt kicked eight points.
Barrow led 8-0 after an early surge but were pegged back when Kyle Briggs crossed for Featherstone to cut the deficit to four by half-time.
The fightback continued and after Briggs converted substitute Joe Hirst's try, Barrow were two points behind.
Ellis was on hand to score for a second time to restore the lead, with two successful Holt kicks making it comfortable.
