Featherstone Rovers star Jamie Cording’s knee injury is not as serious as first feared after he was taken off in the first-half of Sunday’s 34-6 victory at Batley Bulldogs.

After the game, Cording tweeted: ”Gutted to take a knock but it’s positive news and I should be all good.”

Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “Jamie is not too bad. It’s not as bad as we first feared.

“We were a little bit worried is was a nasty medial but it looks, fingers crossed, like he will be right for next week.

“He is an important player for but when he came off Steve Snitch moved into the centres and did really well so as one left one came back into the squad and did really well. I was impressed with Snitch and also with Luke Cooper.

“Every time Cooper has played first grade he’s done really well.”

Rovers lost Jamie Foster and Colton Roche on the morninmg of the game.

Sharp added: “We didn’t allow it to distract us and we didn’t make it an issue.

“We lost two important blokes but we were just so focused on what we needed to do.”
