Doncaster chief executive Carl Hall believes this week’s Co-operative Championship One clash with Hunslet will be a test of the Dons’ progress.
Last week they beat Swinton 16-0 but Hall accepts that Hunslet will offer a different challenge.
He said: “(They) seem to be flying at the moment. We’re really looking forward to this game, as when we went to their place on Good Friday they physically dominated us. We will see how far we have come.”
Hawks battered second-placed Oldham 60-4 on Sunday but coach Paul March is not complacent.
March said: “It was a massive statement, but we’ve set a standard now and it’s up to us to live up to that standard. It’s going to be a tough game for us this week after Doncaster beat Swinton and kept their try-line intact.
“But we’re adding pressure to ourselves to get to that standard every week. I’ve said from the first week that if we play for 80 minutes we can put someone to the sword and it was Oldham who got it first. We can’t sit back. We need another performance like that this week to really send the message out to everyone else.”
Richard Chapman faces a late fitness test before March confirms his squad for the trip to South Yorkshire.
