Head coach Alan Kilshaw has confirmed his 21-man squad for Sunday’s home Rugby League Betfred Challenge Cup third round tie with Keighley Cougars.

The Cougars, as a Betfred Championship side, will be viewed in many quarters as favourites against the Betfred League 1 Parksiders and ‘Killer’ said: “They have a full-time coach and several full-time players who have held their own so far in the Championship.

“Everything points towards the odds been heavily stacked in their favour, but we have a special group and a united club on and off the field.

“We won’t shirk any challenge and we are ready to shake things up. It’s going to be a physical, rough and tough game, a typical derby and not for the faint hearted. And we know we will have strong support behind us, whatever the outcome.”

Hunslet v Keighley (Sunday 12 February, 3.00pm, at the South Leeds Stadium): From: Jimmy Watson, Jack Render, Adam Ryder, Joe Burton, Jake Sweeting, Nathan Conroy, Harvey Hallas, Sam Hallas, Steve Crossley, Josh Jordan-Roberts, Aaron York, Michael Knowles, Danny Barcoe, Nathan Newbound, Jordan Syme, Lewis Wray, Harvey Whiteley, Morgan Punchard, Dan McGrath, Jordan Bull, Brad Wheeler.
