FEATHERSTONE Rovers are set to welcome back centre Jason Walton for tomorrow’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup clash at Leeds Rhinos.
Walton was a late withdrawal in last Sunday’s Championship game at Bradford Bulls.
His place was taken by Kyran Johnson whose only previous apppearance this season was in the 30-22 defeat at Hull Kingston Rovers on Good Friday.
Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “Jason had struggled all week with a sore back.
“On Sunday morning, he said it was not improving at all so we had to make a late change. I was pleased to give Kyran Johnson an opportunity to play on the wing and move Misi Taulapapa to centre. I thought they both acquitted themselves really well.
“I was chuffed to bits for Kyran. He was outstanding when he had his chance at Hull KR and I thought he did a good job again at Bradford. He looked great.
“He’s been patient and worked really hard and he’s done extras and he got the benefit last Sunday.”
