Whitehaven coach Ged Stokes has admitted he does not know which players will take part on Sunday.
Stokes said: “The players have had to take (pay) cuts and some of them aren’t doing so, so at this stage I don’t know who’s playing and who’s not.
“The only thing I do know for sure is that we’re definitely putting a team on the field.
“It’s the culmination of what’s been a very disruptive year, but we’ve just got to battle on.”
On Halifax, he added: “They will be as they always are, a side that can score a lot of points against you if you take your foot of their throat.”
