Featherstone Rovers captain Liam Finn has the current longest appearance and scoring runs in professional rugby league.

He has played in Featherstone’s last 92 matches and scored in the last 53 consecutive games.

Finn (pictured) still has some way to go to overhaul David Watkins’s record scoring run of 92 consecutive matches for Salford from August 19, 1972, to April 25, 1974.

Keith Elwell holds RL world record for consecutive games played with a total of 242 for Widnes from the 1976–77 Challenge Cup Final against Leeds on May 7, 1977, to the match at Hull on September 26, 1982.

Meanwhile, Featherstone Rovers have launched a ‘4 for 3’ ticket offer which acts as a mini season ticket. It costs £50 and allows entry to home matches against Workington (Sunday, March 24, 3pm kick-off), Swinton (Monday, April 1, 1pm), Batley (Sunday, July 7, 3pm) and Whitehaven (Sunday, August 22, 3pm).

The mini season ticket is available from the main office at the Big Fellas Stadium (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm) and the club shop (Saturday, 10am-noon).

Featherstone play York in an Under 20 Championship game at Huntington Stadium on Thursday evening (8pm). On Saturday, Featherstone host Bradford at Big Fellas Stadium in an Academy Under 19 game (2.30pm).
