Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell will return to his old club Featherstone Rovers when the teams meet in a pre-season game at Big Fellas Stadium on Sunday, December 28 (3pm kick-off).
Rovers head coach Andy Hay, who will also be facing his old club, said: “This is always a big game for the fans in the pre-season calendar and will be a tough challenge in our pre-season game. Our pre-season will be geared around being ready for the opening Kingstone Press Championship game against Hunslet Hawks.
“Pre-season training can be a physically and mentally tough for all players and I’m sure by December 28 they will be itching to play against some quality opposition.
“We’d like to see plenty of Rovers fans at the Big Fellas Stadium for the fixture and I’m sure we will see a great crowd for a tough game against our neighbours and some familiar faces.”
Admission prices and hospitality packages will be announced in due course.
