Fev seek Toulouse revenge

Jerome Gout is definitely out for Toulouse after recently needing a wrist operation.

Former Leeds forward Simon Worrall (shoulder) is still being assessed as Toulouse aim for three points that could push them into the play-off places.

However, coach Gilles Dumas knows his team need to improve from their recent 38-24 defeat at Sheffield.

He said: “I didn’t see the same team playing at Sheffield as I had at Widnes and Featherstone. There were too many mistakes and too many missed tackles.”

Rovers coach Daryl Powell is likely to recall Jamie Field, while Jon Grayshon (broken nose) and Matt Dale (ankle) are doubtful after picking up knocks during Tuesday’s heroic win at Leigh.

Featherstone are aiming to take revenge against Toulouse, who less than a fortnight ago became the first team to defeat Rovers in the Co-operative Championship when they won 26-24 at Bigfellas Stadium.

Powell said: “The forward challenge is going be tough and the challenge in the heat is going to be big, but I think we’ve got a tough group this year and if anyone can do it I think it’s us.”
