Half-time activity 2 – A bedtime dress-up race Getting dressed and making the bed is something we do every day, but how easy is it to beat an opposing fan when you have got to get dressed into a huge pair of pyjamas and then run to make the bed up. Half-time activity 3 – Giant pillow fight Two opposing fans, two giant pillows, one fight until the end; what could be more fun!

  2. ANDY Bostock has been ruled out for six weeks after suffering a broken hand in yesterday’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup triumph over Oldham. The Featherstone front-rower underwent surgery this morning after scans confirmed his injury, ruling him out of Rovers action until June. Bostock has appeared in all 13 of Featherstone’s league and cup matches in 2017, scoring four tries. Head coach Jon Sharp, who is sponsored by Ross Travel, said: “Losing Andy is a big blow for us, there is no doubt about that. “He has been one of the team’s top performers this season and he is going to be missed over the next month or so. “But Luke Cooper, Darrell Griffin and Richard Moore are all playing very well. “Darrell is playing as well as he ever has for Featherstone, Luke is constantly proving his ability and Richard is adding a massive amount to the team. “Those guys are aware they are going to have to take on a little added responsibility, until Andy can get himself back out there, and I feel sure they will deliver. “James Lockwood will offer a little assistance too and we are not far away from welcoming back Jason Walton and Frankie Mariano.” Mariano, nursing a broken arm, is likely to return to action next month, alongside Walton (knee). Luke Briscoe and Anthony Thackeray remain suspended, with three matches and one match left to serve on their respective bans. It is all about 'FAMILY MATTERS' when the Rovers return to Kingstone Press Championship action, this Sunday, with Mark Aston’s Sheffield Eagles arriving as the visitors. Supporters can purchase family passes (two adult and two junior tickets) for just £31 – as part of an in-store only initiative – up until 2.00pm on Saturday.
  3. MALCOLM Dixon – the man who skippered Featherstone to Challenge Cup glory 50 years ago – will lead out Jon Sharp’s side this Sunday when the Rovers host Oldham in round five of the 2017 competition. Dixon will don the No.10 jersey he wore on that momentous day in the capital, while carrying the match ball used in the 1967 Challenge Cup final out onto the LD Nutrition Stadium turf. The former Featherstone front-rower, an ex-Great Britain international, will then present Sunday’s match ball to referee Tom Grant ahead of kick-off. Dixon’s involvement this weekend formally begins the club’s 50th anniversary Challenge Cup celebrations, with another exciting announcement to be made this evening. Rovers Head of Communications Ryan Sparks said: “We have a great deal planned for the weeks and months ahead as we look to pay tribute to Malcolm and his team-mates who enjoyed that special day at Wembley, back in 1967. “As a club, we believe it will be fitting for Malcolm to lead out the Featherstone team and handover the match ball on Sunday afternoon. “We were delighted to discover he had kept both his match shirt and the Wembley match ball itself – and he will be bringing them along this weekend. “We have modelled Sunday’s match programme on the one issued at Wembley almost 50 years ago to the day and we will be making further, exciting announcements today and tomorrow. “Jon Sharp has spoken of his desire for us to enjoy a good cup run this season, which we believe will make planned celebrations even more special. "We hope to see a strong crowd getting the boys this weekend as we look to book a place in the tournamnet's last 16." Tickets for the fifth-round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup clash can be purchased in store and online, by CLICKING HERE, priced at £18 (adults), £12 (concessions) and £5 (juniors).

  10. RICHARD Moore looks set to return to Kingstone Press Championship action on Easter Monday, after being included in the Rovers’ LOCO Energy 19-Man Squad for the visit of Bradford Bulls (kick-off 3.00pm). Former Bull Moore missed Featherstone’s Good Friday trip to Hull KR through suspension but is now back in contention, taking the place of Kyle Briggs ahead of tomorrow’s round eleven Kingstone Press Championship encounter. Jon Sharp’s squad is otherwise unchanged, with Jason Walton and Frankie Mariano ruled out with injuries. And there is no place either for Luke Briscoe, who has four matches of a five-match ban still to serve. Ian Hardman and Misi Taulapapa, who were withdrawn prior to kick-off on Good Friday, will face late fitness tests tomorrow. THE LOCO Energy 19-Man Squad: Ian Hardman, James Duckworth, Chris Ulugia, Misi Taulapapa, Anthony Thackeray, Darrell Griffin, Keal Carlile, Andy Bostock, Michael Knowles, John Davies, Richard Moore, Brad Tagg, Luke Cooper, Scott Turner, Matty Wildie, Kyran Johnson, James Lockwood, Josh Hardcastle, Cory Aston. PLEASE NOTE: Rovers and Bulls supporters will be able to pay-on-the-gate tomorrow, with admission priced at £18 (adults), £12 (concessions) and £5 (juniors).
  11. FEATHERSTONE Rovers are delighted to announce a record-breaking new partnership, which is to see the club’s home ground become known as the LD Nutrition Stadium. After becoming the Rovers’ official nutrition partner earlier this year, LD Nutrition have agreed a sizeable three-year contract, investing a significant financial sum to become a key shirt sponsor from 2018 and Featherstone’s principal naming rights partner with immediate effect. LD Nutrition, founded last year in the heart of Featherstone, is one of the UK’s fastest-growing companies in their field, continuing to expand with new stores opening across the county. Supplying fresh, healthy and tailored food to support a wide variety of dietary needs, LD Nutrition parter a host of professional organisations and sports clubs. Rovers general manager Davide Longo said: “We have formed a fantastic partnership with LD Nutrition and this announcement represents a fresh and exciting new chapter within it. “LD Nutrition have been fuelling our playing squad for some time now and the relationship has grown into what we have here today - the LD Nutrition Stadium! “Lee (Westerman) and Dawn (Hepworth) (directors of LD Nutrition) are long-standing supporters of Featherstone Rovers and it has been a goal of theirs to become a part of the club, so this is a proud moment for them. “LD Nutrition are seeking a return on what is a significant level of investment on their part and we fully intend to deliver one. “As a still relatively young business, brand awareness is high on their agenda. They saw the chance to take over the naming rights of our stadium as a major opportunity to help boost their level of growth. “We have been working hard to forge a raft of new commercial partnerships, right across the club, and this is an example of another great one coming together. “This is a long-term commercial agreement and one which will prove extremely beneficial for both parties, with LD Nutrition already looking at eventually moving on site here as part of their own expansion plans for the future. “It is a great privilege to be working with such a forward-thinking organisation. We are moving into an exciting new era at Featherstone Rovers and everyone is thrilled to be welcoming another big player to the table.” Lee Westerman, head chef and owner of LD Nutrition, has spoken of his pride following today’s announcement. “This means a great deal;it is a massive thing for us to be a part of,” he said. “We have been working with the Rovers for a while now but this was an opportunity we could not afford to turn down. “To be able to have our brand aligned with such a famous name in rugby league is absolutely fantastic. “We have cornered a small area of West Yorkshire at this early stage but we are looking to progress into the rest of the county and further afield. “We believe, working with Featherstone Rovers, we can grow and develop our company while supporting LD Nutrition's hometown team. “Our goal is to create a chain of LD Nutrition outlets across the north of England, ensuring people get on the right track, eating healthy, and this is another great step forward for us. “To have the naming rights of the Rovers’ stadium is extremely exciting for us and we hope to see our name up in lights come the end of the season!” Former Super League champions Bradford Bulls will arrive as the first opponent to ever play at the newly-named LD Nutrition Stadium, on Easter Monday, in Round 11 of the Kingston Press Championship. Tickets for the clash can be purchased up until 2.00pm TODAY and - if you buy IN STORE - you will be able to claim a £2 discount on adult and concession admission prices.

  14. At end of the day you commit the crime and have to suffer the consequences of paying for it, but I just wish there appeared to be some consistency with the punishment from the disciplinary committee
