The 2 pictures are of an era when the Rovers were known as the "FEATHERSTONE PIGS or FEATHERSTONE STEAM PIGS". Aparently thier all red tops and white shorts with warmed up bodies made them look like the name. The first picture is 1926, the second 1927. I have 1 name for both teams. can we name the rest and fill in the blanks?

this is not featherstone rovers, but featherstone rugby union team who were known as the steam pigs.

a steam pig was a steam resevoir used in industrial boilers, which actually looked like a pig. There is one in Bradford's industrial museum. Bradford Northern now Bradford Bulls rugby league club were known as the steam pigs.
