Featherstone query Catalans’ Cup scheduling

Featherstone Rovers have reacted quizzically to the announcement of the kick-off time for their Challenge Cup tie with Catalans Dragons.

Earlier, the Dragons issued a statement via their official website, confirming that:

“The Challenge Cup Round 6 tie against Featherstone Rovers will take place at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium on Sunday 17 May 2015, kick off 5.00pm.”

Featherstone, however, have insisted that they have not agreed to this scheduling.

A statement from Rovers reads:

“Contrary to the announcement by Catalan Dragons this morning that our Ladbrokes Challenge Cup sixth round fixture is to be played on Sunday 17th May at 5pm (local time), Featherstone Rovers wish to state this has not been mutually agreed by both clubs or the RFL.

“As soon as an agreement has been reach we will announce them through our official website and social media channels.”
