Hunslet hosted Doncaster last week, with the winner getting a home League One Grand Final place.

The West Yorkshire side suffered a fightback in the second half from the Dons.

Hunslet completed the league double over North Wales. They first met in Round Two at the South Leeds Stadium, with Hunslet coming out on top 22-8. Later in the season Hunslet travelled to Chester where they won 30-20.

They will be looking to bounce back to winning ways.

North Wales finished sixth in the table in the final play-off spot and they have had the knockout mentality for numerous weeks.

In the opening week, North Wales travelled to Cumbria to face Workington Town where they defeated them. Before featuring live on The Sportsman last weekend at Boundary Park against Oldham.

The Roughyeds took a 12-0 lead, however, the Crusaders came from behind to win 13-12 thanks to a late drop goal.

Last weekend, dual registration player Leon Hayes had a big say. However, this weekend he has been named in Gary Chambers’ Warrington Wolves side.
