Ithink we can only class those as old Rovers if they were first reared by Rovers.

Only a few of those listed were brought through the ranks at rovers. A symptom of the contract system - players are on the merry go round every few years.

I thought Paul Hughes signed for dewsbury?

Josh Weedon played 6 games for Normy Knights this season scoring I believe 7 tries. He then went back home and I do''t know if he is intending on coming back to England or not.

That's just how it is these days. Everybody on one year contracts and wholesale changes every year.

Some of those players are rejects and some have gone on to better things.

Rejects, rejects, what an horrible description and word, surplus to requirements is far more kinder.
