Gareth Raynor has a something to prove in Featherstone Rovers' Challenge Cup meeting with Wigan Warriors.

Featherstone Rovers winger Gareth Raynor will have a 'point to prove' when his giant-killing side take on holders Wigan Warriors in the Challenge Cup fifth round.

Raynor has yet to make his debut for Rovers after being sacked by Bradford Bulls for a breach of the club discipline.

After taking time out of the game, the former Great Britain player will get his chance after teammate Tangi Ropati was ruled out for three months with a broken jaw.

Featherstone coach Daryl Powell said of Raynor: "We gave him a bit of time away just to clear his head and make sure he could fully commit.

"I think he's ready to do that so it's over to him now. He's a strong chance of slotting in there on the wing.

"And he's got a point to prove. He's come back into the club looking to get into the team and show us what he's got. He'll get an opportunity to do that this weekend."

The 34-year-old won the cup with Hull back in 2005.
