NRC Preview: Halifax v Hunslet

Halifax coach Matt Calland will be eager to bounce back from his side’s first competitive defeat of the year.

‘Fax went down 13-6 in Wednesday night’s Northern Rail Cup game with Sheffield Eagles.

But Calland reported no major new injury concerns after the match, while Makali Aizue is hoping to return to action soon.

Hunslet are missing Luke Haigh and Richard Knight but coach Paul March has an otherwise fully fit squad.

March said: “We’ve got to be disciplined when we’ve got the ball and when we’re in defence. That side of the game let us down massively last week. Players got frustrated and that got to us. We’ve got to learn from it.”

He added: “I’m glad it’s come about that we’re playing Halifax. You want to be playing against the best players and Halifax are certainly the team at the moment.

“They’ve made some big signings and they already had some big names there. It’s going to be a test for us.”
