The 1.30pm fixture will be the first time Featherstone have played since a 46-6 first-round Challenge Cup win over Hunslet on March 13, 2020.

Brett Ferres will miss the encounter after undergoing an operation, which was required after he spent some time on loan at Leeds Rhinos last year.

Junior Moors has joined the club from Castleford Tigers but will be unavailable as he finalises VISA issues.

Joe Summers, who also arrived at Post Office Road from Castleford, is sidelined by a broken foot.

“We have got 28 people playing, that is everyone who is fit and available,” confirmed Webster.

“The only people who aren’t available for this week are Brett Ferres, who had a small operation after playing for Leeds.

“Junior Moors hasn’t yet finalised his VISA stuff, which will be done before the first league game and Joe Summers broke his foot just before Christmas.

“Apart from that, we will have all of our new signings and people from last year playing.”
