Former Featherstone Rovers hooker Trevor Clark was presented with his heritage number by Rovers programme editor Chris Heinitz during the half-time break at last Friday evening’s Championship game at Sheffield Eagles.

Clark, who was in the country on holiday from New Zealand, holds number 656 on the list.

After joining Rovers from Leeds, Maori international Clarke scored 30 tries in 125 appearances for the club.

He spent four seasons at Featherstone before moving in 1992 to Bradford Bulls where his 23-year-old son Mitch now plays.

Friday’s game was the only Rovers fixture Clark could attend during his short visit to this country.

Rovers were unable to present the certificate to him at the home match against Whitehaven the previous week because Trevor was watching his son play for Bradford on the same day.

Everyone who has played first-team rugby for Featherstone has been awarded a Rovers heritage number.

The heritage numbers are part of the extensive work that has been carried out to document the club’s playing history.

The line-ups, scorers and result of every match since Rovers turned professional has been documented along with the full playing record of everyone who has appeared for the club.
