Featherstone Rovers v Warrington Wolves
The Featherstone Rovers welcome the Warrington Wolves to Post Office road in what is set to be a strange match in many ways.
For Fev to play host to a team that reached the Grand Final last season and who defeated the Brisbane Broncos earlier this season is some achievement and shows just how far the club have progressed recently but it is perhaps an indicator of just what a week it has been for the Wolves that Featherstone go into the game with a good chance of winning.
Warrington wrapped up a swift return to the Super League proper by winning 5 from 5 in the Qualifiers and on the face of it everything looks good once again for the Wolves but 2 major announcements were made around that game that make for an uncertain future.
The club’s signing of Peta Hiku looked to be a real show of intent for next season but the decision to release him after half a season is strange at best- the club could have at least held out for a substantial transfer fee. Then the club announced after securing promotion, their head coach, Tony Smith is to leave.
With those pieces of surprise news and the fact that they have been celebrating all week and in truth have little to play for in this match, Featherstone could easily take advantage and pull off a huge shock on Sunday.
Fev have just the 1 draw from their 5 matches in the Qualifiers.
Warrington have won 5 from 5 in the Qualifiers.
