NRL Grand Final winners Lachlan Coote and Kane Linnett headline the star names who will be in action for Scotland when they face a Cumbria Select XIII in Liam Harrison's testimonial.

Full-back Coote and centre Linnett both helped the North Queensland Cowboys to NRL glory in 2015 and are in line to make their international bows for the Scots in the upcoming Ladbrokes Four Nations.

The duo have both been included in Scotland's 24-man squad for the tournament, and are set to feature when the Bravehearts face Harrison and his Cumbria team-mates in the testimonial clash at Craven Park a week on Friday.

Head coach Steve McCormack, who coached Barrow Raiders from October 2009 to August 2010, intends to give his full squad a run-out in the match on October 21, with Coote and Linnett just two of the big-name players in action.

Huddersfield Giants half-back Danny Brough, Lewis Tierney - the highly-rated 21-year-old who helped Wigan Warriors to their Super League Grand Final triumph last Saturday - and Warrington Wolves' Matty Russell are among those from closer to home who will be taking part too.

And new St Helens signing Luke Douglas, who has joined from NRL outfit Gold Coast Titans, could also put in an appearance.

Former Raiders loan player Ben Hellewell, now of London Broncos, has been included in the Scotland squad by McCormack, but current Raiders man Shane Toal misses out.

The Cumbria squad is likely to be made up mostly of Harrison's Barrow team-mates and players from Workington Town, plus some of the top amateurs from the area and members of the Furness Raiders under-19s team.

There will also be an opportunity for fans to join Harrison and the players for post-match food and drinks at The Nines on the same night, which will feature live music as well.

Anyone wishing to attend can pay for entry to the event on the door, but numbers are limited and tickets are available in advance from the Barrow club shop.

Furness Raiders play the first home game of their maiden College Rugby League season tonight when they host Wakefield College (kick-off 7pm).

The Raiders opened with a 29-16 victory at Midlands Hurricanes in Loughborough last week, while Wakefield recorded a 44-4 win at home to Tyne Met College in their first match.

Tonight's match is at Craven Park and admission is £3 for adults, £2 for concessions and £1 for under-16s.
