Featherstone’s Kingstone Press Championship fixture at Bradford Bulls has been re-arranged for Wednesday, July 1 (8pm).

The game was scheduled to be played last Sunday but was postponed because Rovers visited Catalans Dragons in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

Rovers coach Andy Hay said: “It’s not ideal for us but it’s better than playing it midweek on Tuesday or Wednesday this week which is what Bradford wanted to do originally.

“We couldn’t have done that after going to Catalans and then playing Leigh in the Summer Bash next Sunday. The RFL intervened and they’ve put in on July 1.”
