High-flying Featherstone Rovers are aiming for their seventh win in a row when Barrow Raiders arrive at Post Office Road tomorrow.

The run – which started with their 26-12 victory at Craven Park in April - has lifted them into third place in the Betfred Championship, but coach Ryan Carr believes they still have room for improvement.

A win over the Raiders would lift Featherstone into second place if an under-strength Toulouse are beaten in Toronto tonight but Carr is more focused on Barrow than what happens in Canada.

“We have only one game in mind to focus on and that is our next opponents (Barrow),” Carr said. “We can’t control other games, all we can do is what we can do and we have got some improvement in us.

“The big strength of the playing group is that they narrow their focus on the next opponent and for us that is Barrow.

“They had a really good win against Halifax so we know they will be coming ready to play."

The latest win on the successful run came last week with a 22-4 victory against Widnes Vikings and was a sign of the character of the team, according to Carr.

“They put 44 points on us earlier in the season so that showed just how much we have improved,” he said. “It showed the character of the team.”

More good news for the Rovers boss this week came when long-serving skipper James Lockwood signed a two-year extension to his contract.

Carr said: “He has been a big part of what we have done here. He has very high standards and has been vital to us this season.

“He leads from the front and it is a positive that he has decided to continue his stay at the club.”

Lockwood, who has been at the club for seven years after joining from Dewsbury, said: “I am enjoying my rugby and although we had a bit of a slow start, over the last couple of months we have really gelled.”
