We couldn't wish for a worse draw. They'll win in front of no one.

Lets not turn up and give them the game it will cost us more than we will get for playing them unless the TV think its a decent tie which I doubt. But let them have the win by default I'm sure we could.The only way we would make money is if we beat them which I think we could but I don't want a good cup run this year lets get out of it ASAP give them the game without playing it that would suit both teams IMO.London would of made more money playing it at our place.

I bet there's 500 their at most and 300 of them will be cappers. I would of preferred to play a French team away at least it would of been a good day out too.

Mo its a stinker of a tie. The CC as been dead for years now ever since SL came onto the scene. We won't make any money from this tie and maybe pick up big injuries to key players its a game I feel we don't need and personally I would send the kids and keep our guys wrapped up in cotton wool.

we are forgetting that this is a winnable game for Featherstone. Come on Rovers we are in it to win it not just to make up the numbers.

Agreed you play to win if we go down day before and things go your way on the day who knows what the score will be

If we play to our potential, it is certainly a game which we can win. Problem with that is the fact that IF we DO win and get drawn at home next round, will we have to play this away, bearing in mind the reduction in spectator space.

This is a game I won't be attending. I just hope the guys come back with no injuries. Don't care about the score to be honest as I want us out of this cup as soon as possible as it cost us last season. Just hope its not on TV because it will make us look bad with no one being their.

Rovers have a better away record than at home in the last few seasons. They are capable of winning if they hit top form. But which Rovers will turn up?

To be fair no champ club should be beating a SL club on their own patch ( London don't actually fit that bracket at the minute as we could be playing on a farm for all we know 😄😄😄) The salary caps see to that I reckon. I'm confident we would beat any of the bottom half of SL at home but away is a different matter. We have got a chance but with our away form at present I don't think we have much of a chance if I'm being honest. On the day it just depends which Fev turn up if the Fev that beat c@s last season turn up we will win if the Fev that played York turn up I fear the worst.
