Fev address Sammut rumours

Following speculation linking a current Super League player to a coaching role at the club, Featherstone Rovers have issued a statement on the subject.

Fev announced James Webster as the successor to Ryan Carr last week, but rumours have followed over the last few days suggesting that Rovers have offered a player/coaching role to a current player, which the club have moved quick to comment on.

The player at the centre of the speculation is believed to be half-back Jarrod Sammut.

“The Rovers currently have an assistant coach in the shape of Paul March, who is very highly thought of within the club and has already been informed by James Webster that he would be welcome on the Australian’s staff for the 2020 season after doing such a great job in 2019,” the statement reads.
