Gareth Hock departs Featherstone

But after Featherstone failed to make the Championship top four, they are having restructure their squad ahead of a significant reduction in their central funding.

A club statement said: “Gareth Hock has left the club after agreeing mutual terms for a release from his contract.

“Featherstone Rovers would like to thank Hock for his service and cooperation as the club proactively looks to restructure for 2019.”
