Hunslet RLFC Head Coach Gary Thornton in the build up to the fixture said “This is an important fixture to finish off our pre-season preparations.

“The squad have worked hard and improved week on week which has been evident on the pitch in all our pre-season games.

“When the fixtures were announced and it was a spare week for us, we felt it would be beneficial to have a game this weekend to help our preparations for the trip to Doncaster.

“Match minutes under ours belts are important and playing against opposition like Bradford Bulls will bring that extra edge to our preparations.”

In an injury update, Tommy Brierley is still recovering from a knee operation and is expected to return to action in a month, with Dale Bloomfield nursing a shoulder injury, and Tommy Ashton a hamstring injury, but both should be fit for the Doncaster game. Adam Robinson is unavailable due to prior work commitments, but is now fully fit.
