Championship One preview: Hunslet v London Skolars

Michael Haley (hamstring) and George Clarke (leg) are both missing for Hunslet Hawks, along with Danny Maun (concussion), Aston Wilson, James Coyle and Liam Hood.

But Hawks coach Barry Eaton is boosted by the likely returns of James Houston and Luck Stenchion ahead of Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship One fixture against London Skolars.

Eaton said: “We’ve had a horrendous couple of weeks in terms of injuries, and we’re expecting a really tough challenge on Sunday.

“I’ve looked at London’s squad and they’ve got some really good experience in their pack. I know Ryan MacDonald well having played alongside him at Widnes and Batley, and he’s a tough cookie.

“They’ve also got Mike Worrincy, Lamont Bryan, Dave Williams and Mike Bishay as well. They’re a good side and they should have beaten Oldham last week – they deserved to win that game.”

On Hunslet’s own form, Eaton said: “We’re going OK, but we’ve got areas where we want to be better.”

Skolars winger James Carty (ankle) will be assessed before coach Joe Mbu finalises his team for the trip to West Yorkshire.
