FEATHERSTONE ROVERS boss John Duffy has paid tribute to winger Luke Briscoe after he completed a unique feat.
Briscoe touched down in successive Betfred Championship games for Rovers, either side of a try-scoring appearance for Leeds Rhinos in Super League. After helping Rovers beat Barrow Raiders nine days ago he joined Rhinos on a deal until the end of the season, featured in their loss to Catalans Dragons last Wednesday and then returned to Featherstone on dual-registration.
The 24-year-old was among the try scorers in Rovers’ 40-6 win at Sheffield Eagles and Duffy said: “He played three games in seven days and scored in every one.
“He’s phenomenal, I’m glad we got him and he played fantastically well.”
Duffy – whose side came through with no new injuries – saluted a “really good team performance” after Rovers recorded a third straight win.
He said: “I thought in the first half we were really good.
“We are grinding out some good results at the minute, we are sticking to our plan and I’m really happy for the boys.”
