The two players suspended by Hull KR after a car chase have been given a fresh start. Ben Cockayne, who was released earlier this month because of a series of disciplinary scrapes, has joined Featherstone Rovers for the rest of the season.

His departure from Craven Park came too late for him to find a new Super League club before the signing deadline, but he hopes that playing in the Championship will put him in the shop window.

Meanwhile, the other player implicated, Liam Watts, has had his suspension lifted and has returned to training with Rovers. His coach, Justin Morgan, warned it could take time for him to win his place back.
