Match Preview


Duo missing for Halifax

Halifax coach Karl Harrison will be without Ross Divorty and Andy Bracek for Sunday's Kingstone Press Championship visit of Hunslet Hawks.

Unbeaten Halifax are searching for a sixth win in seven games following their 34-22 triumph over Swinton Lions.

Meanwhile, upbeat Hawks coach Barry Eaton insists his squad will not get carried away after last week's 30-0 win over Whitehaven.

Hunslet won only two league games in 2012, but have already notched up three victories this term and are currently seventh in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Eaton said: "We're going in the right direction, but we've got our feet rooted to the ground. We've got a tough run of games coming up.

"We had a thoroughly professional performance last week, and the players are starting to feel a little bit better about themselves.

"It's certainly better going to places like Halifax on the back of some OK form. We know they're a good side, but we'll go there with a bit of confidence."

David March looks set to return to action for Hunslet, but Liam Welham is doubtful with a head wound and Stuart Kain faces three weeks out with a knee ligament problem.
