Featherstone Rovers have revealed their squad numbers ahead of the 2021 season.
Rovers new recruits sees Tom Holmes take the six, Nu Brown at nine and Connor Jones at 14. The pack remains relatively unchanged, although Dale Ferguson has taken the number 24 shirt to honour the first squad number of his playing career, meaning Craig Kopczak comes in at eight. Meanwhile, new signing Junior Moors is handed number 31.
Josh Hardcastle switches to four, with Kris Welham coming in at three. Ben Blackmore continues with the number 2 shirt and on the opposite wing Gareth Gale moves to five.
Webster said: “Squad numbers are generally designed for the fans. It creates debate amongst supporters and I always enjoy watching people come up with certain teams and combinations.
“Personally, I am not a massive fan of squad numbers. As a player you always wanted to earn that staring number each week and I much prefer the Australian system of players wearing 1-13.
“These players will earn starting positions based on effort and performance, not what number they were given in January.”
