Featherstone Rovers will have forwards Jamie Cording and Colton Roche back in contention for Sunday’s home Championship clash against Oldham.

Cording missed Featherstone’s last game against Batley Bulldogs with a rib injury while close-season signing Roche is available after recovering from a hamstring injury and completing a two-match suspension.

Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “It gives me a couple more people to consider for selection which is never a bad thing.”

With Leeds Rhinos playing at Catalans Dragons on Saturday, Sharp is not expecting to have any dual-registered Rhinos players at his disposal.

“I’m just speculating but I don’t think we’ll get any Leeds players this week. They have a few injuries themselves so I think they will want to keep what they’ve got,” he added.
