Two more Featherstone players head home

Featherstone Rovers pair Louis Jouffret and Dean Parata will return to their home countries amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Jouffret has returned to France, while Parata has returned to Australia. They follow Alec Susino and Conor Carey in returning to be with their families.

Both players will undergo their own training programmes at home.

Jouffret told the club website: “With what is happening the world at the moment surrounding the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, I have decided to go back to France to be closer to my family during these uncertain times.

“I’m still training here in Marseille to keep me in good shape for whenever the season will restart, hopefully that will be sooner rather than later!”

Rovers CEO Davide Longo added: “The situation with Louis and Dean is the same we had with the lads last week, the Club 100% understands the players needs to travel home to be with their families.

“Of course we will miss them, but at the moment there isn’t any rugby to be played, so we will look forward to their returns when the current circumstance around the globe get better.”
