Rovers out for revenge at Rochdale

Featherstone’s Darrell Griffin says Rovers are out for revenge when they visit Rochdale on Sunday.

The Hornets recorded a 10-9 victory when the teams met at the start of March and Griffin admits the result left its mark.

“They beat us earlier on in the season and ended our unbeaten start to the year, which hurt us as a team,” Griffin told the club’s official website.

“They will be up for it again this Sunday – it seems everyone is up for it when they come up against us.

“Because we are up there at the top of the league, with the likes of Hull KR and Toulouse, everybody raises their game against us.

“We are under no illusions in terms of the task at hand this weekend. Rochdale went well against Hull KR last weekend and they will be looking to upset the odds by beating us.

“We were poor against Sheffield and are working hard this week to rectify our performance.

“We need to come away with the win, given the teams chasing us, like London and Halifax. Those guys are playing well.

“Us forwards will have to be ready for a tough battle as Rochdale are a very physical side.

“If we can make the hard yards and work tirelessly in defence then I am sure our halves, who have been brilliant lately, will do the business for us.”
