Featherstone Rovers will be presented with the League Leaders’ Shield on Sunday.

The presentation will be made on the pitch immediately after their opening play-off game against Leigh Centurions at Big Fellas Stadium (3pm kick-off).

It is the fourth successive season that Rovers have finished top of the Championship.

The club’s chief executive Craig Poskitt said: “Everybody at the club is delighted to retain the League Leaders’ Shield.

“We haven’t had it all our own way in 2013 but have finished top of the pile again.

“It is now important that we focus on the play-offs and ensure we end the season on a high.

“Danny Evans and Sean Long are doing a fine job and have got the squad performing excellently.”
