Featherstone set for friendly in Valencia

Featherstone have revealed their pre-season calendar for 2020, which includes an away trip to Spain to face Valencia Huracanes.

The game is due to take place on Saturday 11 January at the Levante Stadium, however the club are still waiting to have the game sanctioned by the RFL.

Top RL journalist Gareth Walker has reported that Rovers are “extremely confident” the match will be allowed to go ahead, as they are understood to be waiting on a stadium document to be translated.

Walker has also reported that a Grand Final re-match between St Helens and Salford is also on track to be played in Spain, as was recently reported.

As well as their trip abroad, Featherstone have confirmed three other friendly fixtures.

They will face York at home on Sunday 5 January, Hull KR away on Sunday 19 January and Leeds at home on Friday 24 January.
