IT COULD be a case of winner takes all when Hunslet Club Parkside visit Underbank Rangers in National Conference Division One tomorrow.

Underbank are top of the table, two points ahead of Parkside, who have a game in hand.

Both teams have lost just once this year and tomorrow’s victors are likely to finish top.

Hunslet will be without Kieran Murphy (work) and Dale Harris (unavailable), but Mark Stubley and Michael Waite are set to return.

Relegation-threatened Hunslet Warriors welcome back Caldon Bravo and Craig Smith to the pack for tomorrow’s visit of Normanton Knights with Dave Medley and Connor Jordan boosting the backs, but forwards Dave Norton and Darryl Forster are ruled out with season-ending injuries.

Milford Marlins are at home to Shaw Cross Sharks.

East Leeds, who are challenging for a play-offs spot, visit Division Two’s bottom club Salford City Roosters. Tom Sheldrake and Jacob Walton return to the squad, but Nathan Conroy will miss the rest of the campaign after hand surgery.

Conroy has been found not guilty by a disciplinary hearing into his recent red card at Wigan St Jude’s. John Carter is unavailable and Easts have fitness doubts over Dave Nurse, Luke Tomlinson and James Forsell.

Oulton Raiders are at home to Saddleworth and Stanningley visit Woolston in Division Three.
