Was Currier unlucky? In the first instance, yes. Then everybody is forgetting that he put on two stones, fair enough when your not fit, but if you recall he was good to go, played a few games start of 94/95 only to fall over playing pool, whilst alledgedly bladdered, re igniting the intial injury, and we had to sign firstly Warren Wilson and then Daz Hughes, when Wilson had to go.

Talking to one of my pupils today, her Brother 19/20 year old, back row forward (physique similar to Jon Grayshon),who is one of my ex pupils could be signing. He has previous family links with the club.

Didn't we sign Matt Calland as a replacement for Currier? I seem to remember him going to Bradford for about £80K just after SL was started up.

If I remember rightly Steve we signed Currier for the 93/94 season, he got crocked pre season, so Francis Maloney played in the Right Centre position for most of that season, Then as a temporary measure Iva Ropati was re-signed to play in the centres late 93/94 season, I remember him scoring at Headingley March 94. I also think Currier became available just prior to the 94/95 season, but Maloney left. So Rovers had Currier and Ropati available and I believe Calland was also signed in that close season as cover for these.
Ropati played the first few games of the 94/95 season then went for some reason, Currier got crocked again and we were left with Calland and a sequence of different short term personel to cover the centre. Wilson, Brett Rodger and Daz Hughes. The problem was compounded because Pearson did his knee early in that season so we had a lad called Nixon an aussie at stand off. Nixon didn't last the season and Brett Rodger subsequently played at stand off in the latter stages. Callard scored at Elland Road to put us briefly in the lead in the CC semi. If I remember rightly Tuuta also played stand off on certain occasions that fateful season and Calland played in the back row in the last couple of league games, before as you quite rightly said he went to Bradford as Fox, Newlove and Clark had done in previous years.

Swear on my life, Dave. It's a season and a personal time that still haunts me, and is still engrained on my memory.

I don't think Francis Malloney played in the centre but always at stand off. From what I recall the 93/94 season Franny had a storming start and was outstanding when we beat Wigan at home. We also had Martin Pearson and because of Frany's form he played full back. Franny then got tapped up and handed in a transfer request which resulted in him being dropped and Pee wee was then reverted back to his prefered position of stand off. Pee wees first game back at 6 was Wakefield away and he had an absoloute stormer. Franny was then sold onto Warrington at the end of the season and we bought Mark Aston.

The 94/95 seaon pee wee had a season endining cruciate ligament injury versus Salford away and we brough Mark Nixon in to replace him. However Nixon was not very creative so we moved him into the centre and played Tuuta at 6. I remeber the Calland try at Elland road very cleary because for 1 second I though I would be seeing my beloved Featherstone Rovers at Wembley, however Jim Fallon ripped us to bits down the right side and a week later we had no club because we were being forced to merge with Cas & Wakey. From being on top of the world to having no club devestated me, however I am proud to say that we thought the merger resulting in the Rovers being a very special part of my life and always will be.

The Cats chief executive also said he “doesn’t know anything” about rumours linking hooker Andy Ellis to Featherstone Rovers but admits the club’s high number of hookers could see some move elsewhere in search of regular first-team action.
