  4. FEATHERSTONE boss John Duffy has unveiled Ryan Powell and Greg Stebbings as the first additions to his Rovers backroom team. The pair worked closely with Duffy during his time in charge of Swinton Lions and arrive at the LD Nutrition Stadium ahead this weekend’s trip to Toulouse. Powell is to act as Duffy’s assistant coach while Stebbings, who works alongside the Featherstone head coach with Scotland, comes in as the new strength and conditioning coach. “I have worked closely with both Greg and Ryan for the past three years,” said Duffy, who was unveiled as the Rovers’ new boss last week. “Greg is superb with all things conditioning and sports science, so I am sure he will make the most of the fantastic facilities we have here. “Ryan worked with me at Swinton too and we know each other inside out. He will bring a great deal of quality to the club. “He is a good, young coach who is looking to succeed in the sport and I am delighted to have him and Greg here.” Powell, brother of Wigan Warriors star Sam, added: “After working with the Wigan Warriors Academy, and playing with Leigh and Rochdale, I moved to Swinton, with John, for the 2014 season. “We gained promotion to the Championship and kicked on from there, before being hampered by off-field issues this year. “I am absolutely ecstatic to be coming to such a big club and believe there is a huge amount to achieve here.” Stebbings said: “The facilities here at second to none and we are very much looking forward to getting into action. “The club is setup brilliantly and we are an ambitious team. I know John and Ryan extremely well and we work very well together. “For me, it is about assessing where the boys are at, where they have got to, and what they require for the remainder of the season.”

  7. Statement from today CHAIRMAN Mark Campbell is expecting exciting times ahead following the appointment of new Rovers boss John Duffy. Duffy was yesterday unveiled as successor to outgoing head coach Jon Sharp and takes training for this time this evening. Campbell believes Duffy’s arrival will prove fruitful for Featherstone, with the start of the Qualifiers just around the corner. “We feel certain John will get a great deal out of the players at his disposal, which ticks the boxes for us,” said the Rovers chief. “He is a coach with heaps of ability and has had to work in difficult circumstances over the past couple of years. “We are all excited to see what John can do within a well-resourced environment and I know he relishing the opportunity in front of him. “We have not got the best out of the squad this year and see this as a season of opportunity for the club. “We want to do well in the Qualifiers and believe John and his team will prepare the players in the right way.” Duffy’s LOCO Energy 19-Man Squad will be revealed tomorrow ahead of this weekend’s trip to Toulouse.

  11. FEATHERSTONE Rovers are delighted to announce the appointment of John Duffy as the club’s new head coach. Duffy, 37, has put pen to paper on an initial one-year deal with the club, meaning the former Super League star will be in charge until at least the end of the 2018 campaign. The Scotland assistant coach departed Swinton Lions yesterday, bringing an end to his three-year reign with the Kingstone Press Championship outfit. And Duffy, who represented Leigh, Widnes, Salford, Whitehaven, Warrington and Chorley, across an illustrious 16-year playing career, cannot wait to get started at the LD Nutrition Stadium. “I am thrilled to be joining Featherstone, this is a huge opportunity for me and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead,” said Duffy, who at 16, in Warrington colours, became the youngest player to ever grace Super League. “Featherstone is a massive club, with a proud history, and it is a privilege to be given the chance to join the long list of great coaches who have worked at the Rovers. “I certainly buy in to the ethos surrounding the club and want to be a part of the journey it is going on. “The Qualifiers are just around the corner but we have one final league game remaining, so I have time to get amongst the players and assess where the squad is at. “These are exciting times for Rovers fans and I am sure the players are looking forward to ripping into the Super 8s next month. “This has all happened very fast for me but the opportunity to join a club like Featherstone was one I could not afford to turn down. “I have enjoyed my time at Swinton and learned a great deal while in charge. “I am now looking forward to this, the next chapter in my coaching career, and am excited as to what the future holds here.” Duffy takes charge as head coach with immediate effect and will take training for the first time tomorrow. Chairman Mark Campbell added: “We are thrilled to have been able to secure John’s services. “He is a fantastic coach and we are very excited to see how his reign here unfolds. “We believe he has done a remarkable job in extremely difficult circumstances, at Swinton, and he deserves a great deal of credit for his efforts there. “John and his team will receive our full support and we hope our fans will get behind the guys for the remainder of the season, going into a massive 2018 campaign.” Duffy's backroom team will be unveiled in the coming days.

  13. I believe his back room staff have resigned out of loyalty, from things I've read on social media
  14. It's a fake account on twitter
  15. I'd say loyalty
