Featherstone welcome Workington to the Big Fella’s stadium on Sunday afternoon. Both sides will be looking for victories after disappointing results last weekend.
Fev travelled to Sheffield last Friday night and were part of one of the shock results in 2016. They lost 35-10 to the Eagles who have been one of the great stories of this season due to the lack of form since they announced they were turning full time after years of competing at the top of the division when being part time. Fev’s tries came through Jamie Cording and James Duckworth with Jamie Foster kicking 1 goal.
Workington may have ended five defeats in a row as they drew at home with Swinton 10-10 but they felt victory should have been theirs and will be looking at the draw at a point lost rather than one gained. Ex Wigan half back Jamie Doran crossed for the home side’s only try and superstar half back Jarrod Sammut kicked the other six points in the draw.
Prediction – Fev will be looking to get their campaign back on track. Rovers by 22.
Featherstone’s 19 man squad- Ellis, Duckworth, Cording, Foster, Ormondroyd, Thackeray, Channing, Griffin, Briggs, Hardman, Davies, Tagg, Bostock, Roche, Lilley, Baldwinson, Taulapapa, Spears.
