Featherstone Rovers are ready to add to their promotion-hunting squad with a number of Leeds Rhinos stars.
That’s according to the Full Eighty Minutes, who has revealed that Rovers are set to bank on their dual registration agreement with Leeds: “There will be a number of promising forwards on their way to Featherstone – those are more than likely to get called back at sometime.
“The reserves grade is not week in week out and that’s why Leeds could send the likes of Morgan Gannon or Levi Edwards to Featherstone – I’m not saying that is happening – but it is possible,” The Game Caller journalist said on the show.
“But then there’s the trouble of being called back, they may get one or two games before they are called back.”
Rovers have already to their squad with the likes of world-renowned Joey Leilua, former Castleford Tigers star Jesse Sene-Lefao and Luke Briscoe as well has hardened forward Kyle Trout.
New head coach Brian McDermott has taken charge of Rovers and is closing in on his first month at the Millennium Stadium after spending a spell outside of the game following the demise of the Toronto Wolfpack.
After toughing it out at Harlequins, he took over at Leeds in 2011 and made history by taking them to back-to-back Super League titles from fifth place.
After ending the club’s Wembley drought in 2014, McDermott made history by guiding the Rhinos to the treble in 2015, followed by another Super League title in 2017.
He coached and brought the best out of so many legends and though his reign did not end well, his record stands far and above any previous Leeds coach.
