Last week Iain Thornley headed out on a short-term loan to Barrow Raiders in order to pick up some game time following his return from a long-term knee injury.

He marked his first match since June with a try, as Paul Crarey’s side edged past Halifax with a 16-12 victory.

Speaking to the Warriors’ club website, Thornley said: “I could only do 60-minutes in this one, so I’ve got that box ticked.

"My next game I can do 80-minutes, kick-on and get some form, show what I can do and put my hand up for selection for Matty.”
