Coach Barry Eaton said: “We’re the two teams that came down from the Championship last year, so it’s to be expected that people are talking this game up. It’s an important, big game – but it’s only round two.
“We were solid and tough last week. There were lots of challenging things that tested us, but we dealt with them really well.”
York coach Gary Thornton said: “We were pleased to get our win last week, but I’m not putting any pressure on my players this week. Hunslet have been made clear favourites by everybody, so as far as I’m concerned we go there as underdogs with no pressure on us at all.”
