Head coach Alan Kilshaw has confirmed his 21-man squad ahead of Sunday’s Betfred League 1 trip to Rochdale Hornets.
Kilshaw’s squad includes scrum-half Dom Brambani, who has completed a period of self-isolation. But three-quarter Matty Chrimes, who is a product of crack National Conference League outfit Rochdale Mayfield, will be unable to turn out against his home-town club, having sustained a sternum injury in last week’s win over London Skolars.
“The group have prepared for this game exceptionally well,” said Kilshaw, who added: “Rochdale have hit some good form and after their strong recruitment in the off-season, and during the season, they have a very talented squad.
“We know they will be strong favourites for the game, but I am confident in our squad’s ability to mix it with the best sides in this division; Rochdale fall under that category.”
Hunslet (at Rochdale Hornets, Sunday): From: Lewis Young, Kiedan Hartley, Reece Chapman-Smith, Aaron Jones-Bishop, Wayne Reittie, Jy-Mel Coleman, Dave Gibbons, Dom Brambani, Jordan Andrade, Vila Halafihi, Nathan Conroy, Harvey Whiteley, Alex Rowe, Harry Kidd, Duane Straugheir, Harvey Hallas, Lewis Wray, Joe McClean, Mikey Wood, Joe Summers, Frazer Morris.
