IAN Hardman will be Featherstone’s first-team captain in 2018, with Martyn Ridyard vice-captain.

Hardman was given the captain’s role last year when 2017 skipper Misi Taulapapa missed the start of the season because of a visa issue.

Former Leigh Centurions star Ridyard has been given the number six shirt.

Fellow new signings Shaun Robinson and Scott Wheeldon have been handed the number two and two eight jerseys respectively.

Tom Holmes takes the number 19 shirt, with Gareth Gale and Danny Maskill having numbers 23 and 24.
