Featherstone Lions have been given permission to play their Ladbrokes Challenge Cup third round tie against South Wales Scorpions at the Mill Pond Stadium this Saturday (3pm).

Admission will be £5 adults and £3 concessions.

Lions teams manager Keith Bell said: “We are hoping for a good home crowd behind us in a game we think we’ve got a great chance of winning.

“We know it will be a tough encounter against the League One opponents but we are quietly confident of pulling of a shock victory on our own ground.

“Lions would like to thank Featherstone Rovers for all their help in trying to stage the game and their ongoing support.”
