BARROW Raiders are still looking to improve despite extending their perfect start to the League 1 season, says head coach Paul Crarey.

Raiders made it three wins out of three on Sunday as they defeated Hunslet 29-6.

Despite leaving the South Leeds Stadium with a comfortable win, Crarey insisted it was not a complete performance.

“I thought in the first-half we were miles off where we needed to be with the ball,” said Crarey.

“Once we broke the deadlock we had a massive ascendancy and scored some very nice tries.

“I thought the two wingers and the full-back were outstanding.

“We managed to make 50 and 60 metres on yardage a few times but it was probably in the final thirds where we need to be better as a team.

“Everyone did well, but we need to be better 20 out really. When we looked at the review we missed a lot of chances that we said we would take in the preview but can you really be critical when you win 29-6 away from home against a side that is really difficult to beat on their own track?”

Crarey saved special praise for winger Tee Ritson who scored two tries during an impressive afternoon in Yorkshire.

With the season now three games in, Crarey is expecting the table to start taking shape.

He said: “It is a good start. The table will start to pan out now. We have already played Coventry and Keighley around the bottom of the table.

“But at some time we will come up against the teams at the top of the table so you have got to be up for them games and have everything in place.

“There is no complacency in our camp. We know how difficult it is to get promoted - we will keep our feet on the ground.

“We have got to be on it every week as every game for us is the other team’s cup final. You could just tell before the Hunslet game that they were on it."

Raiders are now fighting at the top of League 1 with Workington Town.

Chris Thorman’s Town equalled Barrow’s record on Sunday following a 44-16 win at North Wales Crusaders.

North Wales next face Barrow when they travel up to Craven Park this Sunday.

It will be the first time in over year that Raiders fans will be inside the ground to watch Crarey’s team.

Crarey said he was excited for the fans’ return and is looking forward to this weekend’s game.

Raiders will be offering free entry to Craven Park to fans who turn up before 1pm on Sunday and provide track and trace details.
