Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Featherstone Rovers v Batley Bulldogs

Featherstone Rovers coach Andy Hay insists his side can still make major improvements – despite winning 48-24 against Swinton Lions last week.

Rovers are second in the Kingstone Press Championship table, 10 points behind leaders Leigh Centurions.

Hay said: “It was great to get the win, but we clocked off a few times and made too many errors.

“We need to address that and we are still a long way from our best. Allowing Swinton to score as many as they did was not acceptable.”

Rovers will again be without James Lockwood (suspended), while Batley Bulldogs prop Adam Gledhill is a major doubt after suffering an injury against Halifax last week.

Miles Greenwood is also ruled out with a broken thumb, but Bulldogs coach John Kear is in confident mood.

Kear said: “The players are feeling pretty good about themselves, and they’re looking forward to the challenge of going over to Featherstone.”
