Misi Taulapapa is set to return for Featherstone’s final pre-season game against Leeds Rhinos at Big Fellas Stadium on Sunday.

The Samoan international was ruled out of last weekend’s match against Hunslet because of a virus.

Anthony Thackeray, Kyle Briggs, Jack Ormondroyd and Colton Roche will have late fitness tests but Rovers will again be without Steve Snitch (knee).

Thackeray missed the Hunslet game after he injured his back when he slipped in training.

“We’ll have a late call on Thackeray. Hopefully, he will train on Friday,” said Rovers coach Jon Sharp.

“Ormondroyd and Roche picked up bumps and bruises against Hunslet and Briggs has a sore quad so they will also be late calls.”
