HUNSLET club Parkside could claim silverware for the second time in eight days if they win at Milford Marlins tomorrow.

Parkside, who last Saturday added the National Conference Trophy to their National Cup success, will be crowned Conference Division One champions if they take a point from their final two games.

Hunslet, who have already secured promotion, will be without hand injury victim Danny Harrison.

Dale Harris is unavailable and Carl Briggs and Andrew Hullock both face a late fitness test, but Michael Waite, Charlie Magee and Wayne Foster have all been drafted into the squad.

Milford are third and could join Parkside in the Premier Division next year through the play-offs.

Elliot Watmough (ankle) and Ryan Oxtoby (knee) will miss tomorrow’s final league game and there are injury doubts over James Barker and Austin Buchanan, but forwards Eddie Wilson and Connor Parr and half-back Josh Parle are all poised to return.

Second-bottom Hunslet Warriors, who have already been relegated, will complete a disappointing campaign at home to the team below them, Blackbrook.

The visitors have a game in hand, but a win would be enough to ensure Warriors avoid the wooden spoon.

East Leeds have hopes of swapping places with Warriors, but will have to do it the hard way.

They travel to Bradford Dudley Hill, who beat them twice in the league this year, for a Division Two promotion play-off semi-final tomorrow.

Nathan Conroy has recovered from a hand injury and will return for Easts, but they will be without several senior players who are attending a team-mate’s stag do which was was arranged for after the league campaign.

FEATHERSTONE Rovers have announced the signing of Swinton Lions winger Shaun Robinson on a two-year deal.

Robinson said: “I am really excited about what the next couple of years might hold, it will be great working under John (Duffy) again. I think I have shown my worth in this division and now I have a chance to really kick on with my career, at a big and ambitious club.”
