FEATHERSTONE Rovers are set to welcome back Chris Ulugia and Jason Walton from injury in Sunday’s Super 8s Qualifier at London Broncos (3pm).

It was initially feared Kiwi centre Ulugia could miss the rest of the season when he sustained a shoulder injury in Featherstone’s final home fixture of the regular season against Halifax but he has made an excellent recovery and is in the 19-man squad for Sunday’s match.

Walton is also included in the squad after missing the opening Qualifier against Leigh last Saturday.

Leeds Rhinos dual-registered prop Jordan Baldwinson is set to play for Rovers but they are without Luke Briscoe (ankle) and James Lockwood who is serving a one-match ban.

Featherstone’s squad is Ian Hardman, Chris Ulugia, Misi Taulapapa, Luke Briscoe, Kyle Briggs, Anthony Thackeray, Darrell Griffin, Keal Carlile, Andrew Bostock, John Davies, Richard Moore, Frankie Mariano, Matthew Wildie, Jason Walton, Josh Hardcastle, Daniel Igbinedion, Sam Brooks, Connor Farrell, Jordan Baldwinson.

Londonn’s 19-man squad is Elliott Kear, Rhys Williams, Ben Hellewell, Kieron Dixon, Jarrod Sammut, William Barthau, Thomas Spencer, Mark Ioane, Jay Pitts, Andy Ackers, Eddie Battye, Ben Evans, Apirana Pewhairangi, Matthew Davis, Matty Gee, Alex Walker, Lewis Bienek, John Boudebza, Sam Wilde.
