Featherstone Rovers face nervous wait for Jesse Sene-Lefao following shoulder dislocation

Featherstone Rovers fans will have been praying for good news when they saw star signing Jesse Sene-Lefao leave the field in agony in the opening 15 minutes of their first Championship fixture against the York City Knights.

Sene-Lefao had looked certain to score off a neat little Morgan Smith pass, but he knocked on over the line under heavy pressure from York fullback Matty Marsh.

The Samoan international moved gingerly after, clutching his arm before leaving the field in a temporary sling for his shoulder.

Sene-Lefao was later confirmed, by head coach Brian McDermott, to have suffered a dislocated shoulder and now he is awaiting results of a scan to determine the damage.

Featherstone Rovers confirmed to Serious About Rugby League that his shoulder went back into place without a problem on Monday night.

32-year-old Sene-Lefao made the off-season move from Castleford Tigers to be reunited with old teammate Junior Moors as McDermott attempts to influence a Featherstone charge to Super League.

Rovers have signed the likes of Joey Leilua, Bayley Gill and Matty Wildie with captain James Lockwood hoping to lead his side to glory in 2022.
