The blue and golds kick-started their season with this win which was harder work than the scoreline suggests. Barrow Island arrived in town looking to extend a seven-game winning run stretching back to last July but the hosts had other ideas.
Barrow looked to blow the opposition away very early on and raced to an 18-0 lead in only 11 minutes. Jack Howdle forced his way over from close range quickly followed by a try from dummy half by Tom Moor.
Beware the ides of March. But not this week. After the dismal affair a week ago at Dinnington Beverley were back on top form securing another outstanding bonus point win – the seventh in their last eight games.
Crossleyans started the match only one point behind Beverley but never really got a look-in and Beverley comfortably cruised home scoring six tries in the process all of which Phil Duboulay converted in difficult conditions.
We are just weeks away from the start of the 2019 Flat season in the UK, where Beverley Racecourse will hold 15 meetings across the year at the Yorkshire venue. Before then, though, racing fans will be looking forward to the world’s most famous steeplechase, the Grand National.
The 4m2f contest at Aintree racecourse is arguably the most unique contest on the racing calendar, given the size of the obstacles the horses have to jump. A sell-out crowd is expected once again in April with thousands set to travel from Yorkshire for the meeting.

What a match. This was what proper rugby at its best is all about. Two sides at the top of their game going hell for leather for eighty minutes – and with never a hint of ill-temper from start to finish. The result could have gone either way.
After a 66 point feast of scoring only two points separated the sides at the end and neither could have complained at the outcome whichever way it went. Beforehand there was an air of expectancy. Beverley arrived here on the back of four consecutive bonus-point wins and Heath’s recent record was not much inferior.
Fastest Sidecar newcomers of 2017, the father and son team of Gary Gibson/Daryl Gibson are confirmed to return this May to the Mountain Course, as they aim to build upon their impressive performances from recent TT ventures.
