Match Thread: Featherstone Rovers v Hunslet Friday 13th March 2020

Recommended Posts

The 21 man squad will be out tomorrow for this one, so I thought I'd get a thread going.

The website seems to think it's February....

Obviously, no DR for this one, as it's the Cup and presumably no 4-Try Worthington either.

So, if Sutcliffe x 2, Holroyd and Greg are not available, hopefully we'll welcome back Locky & Parata, plus say French and Sweeting we'll be good to go.

Something like this?

Hall
Blackmore Carey French Gale
Jouffret Chisholm
Susino Bussey Harrison
Ferres Harcastle Lockwood
Bench: Parata, Albert, Cooper, Sweeting

Aye, I wouldn't mind seeing Jimmy back, but as they didn't find a place for him v Barrow I wonder if he'll get a run on Friday

I don't know the ins and outs. I guess Jimmy wants game time, which he may have been told he's unlikely to get here, other than this Cup run.

I wonder what will happen to the availability of DR and loans when we start the 1895 CUp.

Looking at last years only outing at Widnes I think we had 4 DR/loans in the 17, so unless the rules have changed I can't see there being a problem.

Righto. Im not sure how the club and coaching staff view this comp, but I'd like to see us give it a really good go.

I would prioritise the 1895 over the Challenge Cup. A trip to Wembley is a trip to Wembley and would be a great day out.

D/R & loan players will be more likely to be allowed to play in the 1895 cup by the Rhinos & Toronto because they're not in that competition, so they won't be cup tied.

It's bad enough now with all the flak we get for our DR partnership for the league games, can you imagine the fuss if we got to the 1895 Wembley final with 5 loans/DR in the team!

Whatever the circumstances whatever is the best for the club is what we should support. If DR brings us in income and success then so be it.

Any news on when any of the injured players might be back?

There was something in League Express this week saying Johnny D might be available for the Hunslet game. Fergie sounds like they are still at the investigative stage.

Refresh my memory which is not what it was. Why are we playing this on a Friday night? We don't have another game until York on the 22nd so why aren't we playing this on the 15th? I bet there is a simple answer that I have forgot.

A welcome potential return for John Davies. Jimmy Beckett recalled as had been suggested earlier, makes a lot of sense, bet he will be thrilled to be getting on the field for us. Sounds from the write-up as if Parata might be available as well.

The club stated that other events were booked over the weekend.
