Dewsbury v Featherstone Rovers In their first League fixture of the new season, reigning League champions DEWSBURY meet the Challenge Cup Winners, FEATHERSTONE ROVERS, at Dewsbury.
Commentator EDDIE WARING says: 'Star of Dewsbury's championship win against Leeds was their captain Mick Stephenson , but he will not be playing today -for Dewsbury have sold him to Penrith, an Australian club, for a world record fee of £20,000. With a Test series here in November against the Australians, all players will be keen to show early form and attract the attention of the International selectors. Featherstone star Steve Nash is the present Great Britain scrum-half, who was a big success in Britain's World Cup win in France.'
