Featherstone rubbish Sammut rumour
Featherstone Rovers have rubbished rumours today linking Jarrod Sammut with a player-coach role.
There had been reports in the media that an unnamed Super League player was in talks to join James Webster’s side in a player-coach position, revealed by League Weekly to be Jarrod Sammut.
However, the club have moved swiftly to dismiss these claims, saying they are nothing more than a forum rumour.
“It is believed that the rumour was started on a fans forum and seems to have made its way into the columns and articles of certain journalists,” they said in a statement.
“The Rovers currently have an assistant coach in the shape of Paul March, who is very highly thought of within the club and has already been informed by James Webster that he would be welcome on the Australian’s staff for the 2020 season after doing such a great job in 2019.
“Recruitment for the rumoured position is already complete with Featherstone having a number of options available to the club in terms of cover as well.”
