Featherstone Rovers vs York City Knights
The Featherstone Rovers take on the York City knights at the 2019 Summer Bash and the great news for rugby fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our Championship live streaming partners.
This is one of the most highly anticipated match ups of the Summer Bash with the 7th placed Featherstone Rovers facing the 3rd placed York City Knights and with both teams in good form coming into the game, we are all set for a fantastic Yorkshire derby in Lancashire’s favourite seaside resort.
Both teams will have expectations of reaching the end of season play-offs but with 4 points between them, this is already looking like a must win for Fev whilst York can cement a top 4 place with the win.
Featherstone have won 3 of their last 4 matches including each of their last 2 whilst York come into the game with the exact same record.
This is one of the games of the Summer Bash 2019 we are looking forward to the most as both teams are packed full of quality, both are playing good rugby and both could easily win this game in what will likely be a close game throughout.
Despite York starting the round 4 points ahead of Fev, Rovers have scored almost 60 points more and have conceded just 1 more point. That highlights a lack of game management with Fev and in a game we expect to be close and with the unfamiliar surrounds of Bloomfield Road, that could and likely will prove the difference.
