Ben Reynolds Returns to Featherstone Rovers: Rugby League Results Update

Rugby League Results: Ben Reynolds Returns to Featherstone Rovers on Dual Registration Deal

In a notable rugby league results development, Hull KR half-back Ben Reynolds has returned to his former club Featherstone Rovers and is set to play for the Flat Cappers against Doncaster this weekend. Reynolds signed for Featherstone ahead of the 2024 rugby league season but left without having played a game in the league, though he did feature in the Challenge Cup.

This cup participation means that Reynolds is now cup-tied and cannot play for Hull KR in their upcoming game against Leigh Leopards, the same side Reynolds lifted the Challenge Cup with in 2023 while playing against the Robins.

Instead, the talented half-back has been named in Featherstone Rovers’ Championship squad, taking advantage of the dual-registration deal between the two clubs that has seen several Hull KR players earn game time with the Flat Cappers.

In fact, Featherstone boss James Ford has included four Hull KR players in his squad for the upcoming match, with props Zach Fishwick and Yusuf Aydin, as well as centre Corey Hall, all set to feature. Both Hall and Aydin had been named in KR’s 21-man squad to face Leigh, but will now ply their trade this weekend on dual registration.

Featherstone confirmed that Reynolds’ inclusion is part of the two teams’ dual registration agreement, rather than a loan deal, which would have required a mandatory two-week minimum period that can only be prevented with RFL dispensation, as seen recently with Warrington Wolves.

Rugby league fans will be excited to see Reynolds back in action for Featherstone, with the club’s statement highlighting his quality and the boost he will provide to their squad, especially with playmaker Thomas Lacans ruled out through injury. This move not only benefits Featherstone, but also allows Hull KR to manage their squad and provide valuable game time for their players on dual registration.
