Kingstone Press Championship Preview: Featherstone Rovers v London Broncos

Featherstone Rovers coach Andy Hay was pleased with his side’s 38-28 win over Dewsbury Rams but is under no illusions about the threat London Broncos present.

““It was a good game, we played some good stuff and Dewsbury did as well. We got the two points so it was a good day out for us,” he said.

“This is going to be a tough fixture, we always knew this Easter period was going to be tough. London have a new coach, who I’m sure will bring bags of enthusiasm, and to get the win at home against Halifax would have been a good boost for them.

“I think we’re looking at a good contest, we’re steadily improving and since the struggles they had at the start of the year they are improving as well. I think we should see another good game at the Big Fellas Stadium this week.”

Andrew Henderson was appointed coach of the London Broncos prior to the home game against Halifax and was pleased to begin his tenure with a victory.

“It was a great win over Halifax,” he said.

“We had to tough it out but we got there in the end which was good. We knew how important it was to get those two points to keep us within touching distance of the top four.

“Featherstone is never an easy place to go to especially on the back of a short turnaround. We haven’t been good on the road and haven’t won a game away from home yet so it’s really important that we have another good performance.

“We need to build on that win against Halifax with a strong performance and hopefully on the night do enough to take the spoils. We’re certainly capable but we’re going to have to play very, very well to do that.

“It’s always a great atmosphere at the Big Fellas Stadium and the fans really get behind their team. I’m sure the boys will enjoy the occasion.”
