FEATHERSTONE’S under 15 and under 16 scholarships teams kick-off the new season with matches against Bradford Bulls at Bigfellas Stadium tomorrow (Wednesday).

The under 15 match starts at 6pm and the under 16 fixture at 7.45pm. Admission is £3 adults and £1 concessions. Children are admitted free.

Rovers scholarship manager Robin Sharp (pictured) said: “As a scholarship we have been waiting over five months to get our 2012 season underway and our opponents don’t come any bigger than the Bradford Bulls.

“All the staff and players are excited and ready to go. It’s a day in the calendar we have been working hard towards and it presents a big challenge for us.

“I am looking forward to seeing how the lads perform first game up. If the quality of training is anything to go by I am sure we will do well. Our achievements over the last two years have shown we can compete against the best in Super League. Our aim this year is to raise standards even higher and improve further.

“I urge all Rovers fans to come along and support the boys. The quality of rugby league on show is fantastic and offers great value for money.”
