Featherstone coach Daryl Powell says that holding the final of the Northern Rail Cup at The Shay in unfair.

Featherstone coach Daryl Powell has criticised the choice of venue for this year's Northern Rail Cup final.

The decider will be held at The Shay on July 20, giving rivals Halifax home advantage should they make it that far.

"I don't think that is fair, to be honest. I think it should be a neutral venue and I think there are enough good quality and neutral venues in rugby league to host the finals," PA Sport quotes Powell as saying.

"But it is what it is. There's not a lot we can do about it so we might as well get on with it."

Featherstone will take on Leigh in the first round of the competition on May 18.
