Featherstone make triple swoop

Featherstone have secured the services of three Super League players on loan and say they have lined up three more.

The ambitious Championship club have acquired Hull winger Jason Crookes for the rest of the season and have signed his Hull team-mate, prop Chris Green, and Warrington forward Danny Bridge on month-long loan deals.

Featherstone spokesman Feisal Nahaboo added of future additions: "We can confirm that the club has agreed three further deals with Super League clubs and we will finalise all paperwork imminently and make further announcements midweek."

Rovers, who have won all four matches since the appointment of new coach Andy Hay, plan to go full-time next season in preparation for an assault on Super League.
