Rovers’ pair closing in on return

Sidelined front-row forward Andy Bostock is closing in on making a return to Featherstone Rovers action, with injured colleague Chris Ulugia also making good progress.

Bostock suffered a broken hand during Featherstone’s Challenge Cup victory over Oldham back in April, while Ulugia (above) sustained ankle ligament damage as the Rovers dumped Halifax out of the competition at the fifth-round stage.

Former Dewsbury man Bostock could feature as early as next weekend, when Jon Sharp’s Rovers take on Bradford in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Ulugua, meanwhile, is likely to miss the next two games before coming back into contention.

Sharp said: “Both Andy and Chris are making good progress and if all goes to plan in terms of their rehabilitation, we will have both of them back in the mix before the middle of June.

“Chris is a little ahead of schedule, while Andy’s recovery has taken a little longer than hoped – but bones and them healing is not something we can control.

“Both of them have been fantastic for us this year and we look forward to welcoming them back as soon as possible.”

Elsewhere, Scott Turner has been ruled out for up to six weeks after scans revealed grade-three medial ligament damage to his ankle.

Featherstone return to action on Sunday when they host league leaders Hull KR.
