Great news, investment in rugby league is investment in rugby league whether it's in London or featherstone.

I hope this extra investment comes to fruition.  Featherstone need to be congratulated for the way the club continues to move forward.

Has any decision been made on the salary cap for the 2nd division yet?

 

I hope it's not still £300k for next year, we need to start building a team that capable of winning promotion in 2015 and competing in 2016.

 

That's not to say all the brass will be spent on players, there's still plenty of infrastructure that requires funding.

Nice to see they have already invested in a centre of excellence for developing stars of the future, sounds like fev will be playing at the top level in the not too distant future. A club doing it properly from the bottom up

It sounds like more good news for the fev faithful,i hope it all come off for you.Also if fev have the financial ability to go full time or a mixture of pro and semi pro players next season then IMO they should be asking the rfl for a SC exemption ASAP then they dont need to make any rushed decisions later on.

I'm delighted at the way investment seems to be going their way, time for them to have their chance after 17 years. But I don't agree that wedges of such as £100K and £1M - £2M is "doing it from the bottom up". Sure they are investing in more than a first team so they are creating a sound base, if that's what you meant, but if and when they get there it will be large private investment that gets them there.

Same as every team in sl then? End of the day money talks and the only way a team like Fev has got any chance of getting in sl is by buying there way in. Like you say at least we're building a solid base and not just chucking money at the 1st team.

And for what it's worth I still don't think sl will come knocking for us any time soon 😑

Excellent news for fev onwards but unfortunately no matter what I just cannot see upwards, there seems to be too much politics stacked against them same for fax, leigh not so much sheff and also the drop to 12.
Still great news to see such a level of investment in the game which will give more young players the opportunity to progress.

Is this not the old political trick of recycling old money promised as new money promised because circumstances offer you the opportunity to make a  ' new' announcement.

Oh dear! Whatever Padge. Is that really all you've got to say about this press release?
