Mellars missed the Workington match because of a hamstring injury but he is expected to be back for Sunday’s home clash against Batley Bulldogs.

He scored a try on his second Rovers appearance in their recent 60-6 win at Barrow.

Featherstone have also taken Castleford Tigers forward Charlie Martin on a month’s loan.
