Ropati was released from Widnes and in 2012 joined Championship winners Featherstone Rovers.
Ropati became a crowd favourite amongst the Featherstone fans, mainly due to his bullocking runs down the right hand side. He further cemented this adoration by scoring the opening try for Rovers against arch rivals Castleford Tigers in the Challenge Cup 4th Round tie on Saturday, 14 April 2012.
