Featherstone Rovers assistant coach Paul March will no longer be second-in-command of the Championship side.
March joined the Rovers coaching set up in 2019 under Ryan Carr and continued to work as assistant coach under James Webster which included taking the helm in Webster’s absence for the 1895 Cup Final at Wembley due to COVID-19.
In a personal statement, March announced: “It’s been a real honour to be involved in two million pound games and to walk the team out at Wembley during my time but I have made the decision to move on to pursue other opportunities.”
Despite leaving the coaching role, March will continue to work as the Rovers Foundation’s Development officer, helping to develop the young, budding Rovers players.
It’s a new era down at the Millennium Stadium with former Leeds Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott joining as the club prepares for another tilt at Super League.
Rovers’ heartbreaking loss to Toulouse Olympique in the Million Pound Game at the beginning of October was their second, following the loss to Toronto Wolfpack back in 2019.
