Featherstone Rovers start the new Championship season with a trip to Dewsbury Rams on Sunday, February 16 (3pm).

Their first home match is against Halifax the following week.

Rovers then take on two newly-promoted teams when they visit North Wales Crusaders on March 2 and host Rochdale Hornets seven days later.

Rovers have a tough finish to the regular season with six of their last nine games away from home.

Their last four matches are against Leigh (away), Halifax (away), Sheffield (home) and Keighley (away).

The Championship season comprises 26 rounds and concludes with the title-deciding Grand Final over the weekend of October 4-5 at a venue still to be confirmed.

As announced last month, the Northern Rail Cup will not be contested next season.

Details of televised fixtures will be confirmed before the start of the season.

The Championship clubs enter the Tetley’s Challenge Cup over the weekend of March 15-16, a competition that concludes with the final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, August 23.
