FEATHERSTONE Rovers winger Luke Briscoe has been sidelined again.

The 23-year-old former Leeds Rhinos player suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury when he made his Rovers comeback against London Broncos at the Summer Bash in Blackpool.

Featherstone are also again set to be without Chris Ulugia (ankle), Andy Bostock (broken hand) and Scott Turner (ankle) for Sunday’s Championship game at Bradford Bulls.

Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “Bostock has had a bit of a setback. It’s not healing like we wanted it to heal.

“Ulugia will be another two weeks.

“Briscoe has suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury. He injured it at Blackpool setting up the try for Turner so he could be the longest of the lot.”
