Photographers Bob Nunn and Carol Austerberry were at Big Fellas Stadium on Sunday to capture the action when Championship outfit Featherstone Rovers hosted National Conference League Featherstone Lions in a pre-season fixture played in dreadful conditions.

The teams drew 6-6 in a game that saw five players - two from Rovers and three from Lions - sent off in the second-half in front of a crowd of 1,209.
