Siddal are one of the top teams in the community game’s flagship National Conference and have beaten semi-professional opposition twice in previous Challenge Cup ties, hammering Doncaster 26-0 in 2010 and Newcastle Thunder 30-4 six years later.
The BBC have chosen the tie for live coverage on their iPlayer, sport website and app and Kilshaw admitted: “It will be a challenge.”
He said: “It will probably be one of the rare occasions when we are going to be favourites for a game.
“We will have to handle that and there’s no pressure on the underdog.
“It’s always better being the underdog, especially in a Cup situation, but we are the professional side and we have ambitions this season.
“We want to go well and the score needs to reflect that after the game.”
Kilshaw added: “We respect them - I have had a look at them, Jamie Greenwood at hooker is a decent player and their halves go well.
“They scored some good tries against Pilks [Pilkington Recs, in the previous round] and we are aware of the threat.
“It is up to us to come out and have a controlled performance.”
Admission prices have been pinned at £5 and the BBC coverage will put Hunslet in the spotlight.
Kilshaw said: “Over the past couple of seasons there may have been a bit of a disconnect with the supporters, but I feel that’s coming back now.
“I feel we are going in the right direction and, being on the BBC, this is a great showcase for us to build that support.”
