Ward targets Super League after return to England with Fev

Robbie Ward has already set his sights on a Super League return following his arrival at Featherstone.

The former Leeds hooker returned from a brief stint with Sunshine Coast Falcons in the Intrust Cup after struggling to find work Down Under.

His return to England has seen him land at Rovers, who are currently fourth in the Championship with ten rounds of action remaining.

If Fev can hold that position, they will enter the Qualifiers, moving Ward one step closer to his dream of returning to the top flight.

But regardless of Fev’s fortunes, Ward is determined to make it in Super League.

“Hopefully we can push for Super League this year,” he told TotalRL.

“Because my aim is to get back to that, and this is a stepping stone for me to get back to Super League whether it’s with Featherstone or not.

“It probably won’t happen this year, but if I can get my performances back up there it might put me in the shop window, but my main goal is to play well and get Featherstone into the four.”

Ward moved to Australia following his release from Leeds Rhinos, and although his time was cut short, he believes it has been of benefit to his game.


“I really enjoyed it,” he said. “But we just couldn’t get any work out there, so we were left in a tough position.”

“I’ve improved a lot over there. It’s a big game week in, week out. It’s massive really and you have to play well every week.”
