Featherstone Rovers’ Jesse Sene-Lefao posts defiant message after spending five weeks on the sidelines

After suffering a dislocated shoulder in his first ever Featherstone Rovers appearance, Jesse Sene-Lefao didn’t exactly have the best start to life at the Millennium Stadium.

Following an off-season where his enthusiasm was rubbing off on everyone at the Featherstone club, it was a big loss for Rovers.

The Samoan international had left 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.

Something didn’t look right and the towering forward was taken off with his arm in a temporary sling as head coach Brian McDermott later confirmed that Sene-Lefao had suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Now, though, the Samoan looks dead set on a rehab program that will get him back on the field to be a crucial figure in Featherstone’s promotion push.

Posting on his Instagram profile, Sene-Lefao said: “A few tools from @pro11wellbeing to help with the recovery/rehab. It’s been tough watching the boys from the sidelines, but in saying that the boys are on fire 🔥🔥🔥 5 from 5 has been a good start. Lesss gooo!!!”
