SAMOAN international Misi Taulapapa says Featherstone could prove “difficult to stop” in the Qualifiers, providing the Rovers can overcome second-tier rivals London on Sunday.

Taulapapa offered up a man-of-the-match performance as the Rovers lost out to Leigh over the weekend - in the opening game of the club’s Super 8s campaign.

But the former NRL star is confident Featherstone can bounce back in the capital, kick-starting what he believes could be a fruitful spell for the LD Nutrition Stadium outfit.

“We have learned a great deal from Saturday and will take it into Sunday, against a good London side,” said Taulapapa, who is sponsored by Choose At Home Blinds.

“We threw away our chance to win against Leigh but we won’t do that again. We just need to be smarter and look after the ball better - and we will.

“London are a team we have done pretty well against this year. We beat them at home and perhaps should have away, so we know what to do.

“A few people may have written us off in terms of our chances in the Qualifiers but we know a win or two will set the ball rolling and make us difficult to stop.

“We have a few more bodies coming back this week too, so competition for places gets even higher.

"I think we will be going to London with pretty much our strongest 17, which is massive for us.

“A lot of people are talking about London after their performance against Catalans last week, but we are happy to fly under the radar.”

Tickets for Sunday’s game, priced at £20 (adults), £15 (concessions) and £15 (students) - while under-12s go FREE - are available, in store, until 5.00pm on Friday.
