Match Preview


Duo missing for Fev

Featherstone Rovers coach Daryl Powell continues to be without Michael Haley (foot) and Sam Smeaton (knee) for the Kingstone Press Championship clash with Hunslet Hawks.

But Tim Spears is making good progress following shoulder surgery and could play in Featherstone's U20s side on Thursday night.

Powell's men are one of only two teams to have a 100 per cent record in the league, with last week's 58-12 win over Barrow Raiders helping to give Featherstone a huge points difference less than a month into the new season.

Powell said: "We're big and mobile, and there are lots of offloads in there which is really strengthening the way we play."

Hawks coach Barry Eaton has doubts over Luke Menzies (shin) and Luke Haigh (shoulder), but expects both to be fit for Sunday's clash.

Eaton said: "We should be looking forward to going to Featherstone and pitting our wits against the best.

"We certainly won't be in fear of going there. It's a place you want to go and enjoy."
