Today the Wolfpack were playing the Featherstone Rovers. This was the last regular game for the Wolfpack. They have already won a spot in the playoffs and the Rovers were still in the running for one.
The game started earlier than usual at 1:30pm ... they usually start at 4:30pm. We stopped in at the Wolfpack store before the game and bought a couple shirts. They had clinched Betfred Championship Shield a couple weeks ago and it's on display in the store.

Attendance was 8,217 ... the largest of the season.
Alas, the Wolfpack lost 30 - 12. It was their first loss at Lamport Stadium. Thankfully the loss doesn't mean much to them in the standings.
