Former Mounties coach Ryan Carr has agreed to join Championship club, Featherstone Rovers, to replace outgoing coach John Duffy, who controversially departed the club to join Leigh.

Ok I didn't know that (I'm a Featherstone fan), was he fired or left for some other reason? Seems (from afar) that he had a pretty good 1st season as head coach?

Yes, he seemed to be going pretty well, until Mounties lost Craig Garvey and then the wheels fell off a bit. Mounties were running first for a big part of the season. All we know is what's in the coaching restructure announcement from the Raiders (the Mounties coach is selected by the Raiders).
