So not seven figures then, really.

Great for the game, but it would be better if we could attract spotlessly clean money (not for one moment that I'm suggesting Probiz do anything illegal - just something that's not very good for the country).

“A consortium will follow my move and I expect Featherstone Rovers to be a dominant force in rugby league in years to come.”

Suggests significantly more investment to follow. Exciting time to be a Fev fan!

Well I am excited , but like they stated we need to attract more fans and that won't happen until Super League allow us entry.

The Chairman must be proud as punch , must be every supporters dream to be able to deliver and achieve what he has for his beloved club. Thankfully his dream is now a reality after years of devotion and hard work, onwards and hopefully upwards The Fevolution marches on.

this is great news for the club and the fans, the clubs been down on its knees at times but now everythings starting to look up again and its no more than the fev fans and the club deserves. all I keep hearing about in the area is wakey and cas but hopefully our time will come again and we'll be the dominant force of the three, some good and positive times ahead for the fev fans and its no more than the long suffering fev fans deserve

Good news for Fev.

Is the 6 figure investment over a number of years?

They already spend to the cap and run the Juniors. Does this mean the majority of the money will be going towards the ground renovations?

Great news, hopefully we can get the new fans that all the hard work deserves.

Well done to all involved, can't wait for Wakey on Sunday.

Looking at the article I'm making an assumption that Rovers coaching team have been given the nod to sign who they believe are the right calibre of player to do a job for us - when the time is right - and to continue to develop the junior/community portfolio.

Will be hindered by the cap though. I would assume with Ellis, James etc that you will be near the cap already?

It really is cracking news for Fev, would much rather see a local Yorkshire team receiving this sort of cash boost.

All I will say is that it has been said before
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Oh come on you know that's not true - maybe a few years ago but certainly not recently

This is fantastic news and with the consortium on board too. Mark, Craig and the rest of our BOD have pulled off probably one of the best deals RL as seen in years and they deserve all the credit they can get.

It would be absolutely brilliant to see the 3 local teams battling it out for a top six spot in Super League.

I know a combined team would be stronger but our area like Hull and many others is rugby mad and crowds will hopefully return for all three teams. We are in a recession at the moment remember so I don't think many top clubs are doing badly so when financial restraints ease then hopefully the game will flourish again.
