Featherstone to return to Spain

Featherstone Rovers have announced they will return to Spain in 2021 to play Valencia Hurracanes once again.

The Rovers travelled to Villajoyosa in January and beat the Hurracanes 102-14, in what was the Spanish side’s first match against English opposition.

‘Los Huracanes’ have also previously announced their intentions to enter League One.

Rovers’ CEO, Davide Longo told the club website: “Having experienced the trip first hand earlier this year and seeing what a fantastic time supporters had, we we’re keen to arrange the fixture again.

“Alicante airport is very accessible from all major UK airports, making it easier for Rovers supporters to travel to the game and enjoy a weekend away.

“We also found it to be an affordable area and extremely welcoming to ourselves and our travelling supporters, hopefully another successful trip can help promote rugby league in Spain.”
