  1. This is so cool, I love going to Rovers especially when the rugger season is finished for summer, can’t beat live football, last year Rovers better style than O’Neills Ireland

  2. Very encouraging figures both at Premier and Div 1. I think rovers at the top is a big factor. they will always get good support and when they are top, opposition teams will always get great support at home to Rovers in the hope of turning them over.
