Jon Sharp’s last game in charge of Featherstone was a 28-8 defeat by Halifax on Sunday

Head coach Jon Sharp has been sacked by Championship side Featherstone Rovers.

The former Huddersfield coach and Great Britain assistant coach leaves ahead of the upcoming Championship Qualifiers.

Sharp departs along with assistant Danny Evans after two years at the club, with Featherstone set to announce his successor within the next 24 hours.

“We feel leaving Jon in charge for the Qualifiers, only for him to depart in October, would make little sense,” chairman Mark Campbell said.
