Coach John Bastian was disappointed Featherstone Rovers were handed a bye into the fourth round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup when the draw was made on Monday evening.

Rovers will now have a blank weekend on March 15-16.

He said: “It would have been great to play a Challenge Cup match. We want games every week and we want that momentum.

“It’s shame but we’ll look forward to the following round.

“We’ll keep busy but it would have been nice to keep the momentum going. You want to play every week.”
