Preview: Hunslet v York

Hawks coach Paul March has urged his side to continue to be “ruthless” in their pursuit of automatic promotion.


Hunslet are top of Co-operative Championship One, and racked up a 58-10 win at Swinton last week.


March said: “Good teams are ruthless. They make sure they put on a good score when they do get out in front, and that’s what we managed to do at the weekend.


“There have been times earlier in the season when we haven’t done that, so it’s pleasing to know that we’ve learned that lesson.”

He added: “York will provide a big test for us this week, but we have a lot of ex-Knights players who’ll be wanting to prove a point.”


Adam Sullivan and Dave Clayton return to March’s line up, while Rob Kelly remains two to three weeks away from a comeback.

York playmaker Chris Thorman returns to action after missing last week’s win against Doncaster.


Coach Dave Woods said: “Chris was going to play but his wife had a baby on Saturday night. He’ll definitely be playing on Sunday, and he’s a good player to have back available.”


Danny Allen is also in contention, along with Brett Waller who has recovered from a collarbone complaint.


Woods added: “We’re just looking to concentrate on our own goals. If we complete our own aims then we won’t be far off.”
