HUNSLET Hawks have a clean bill of health as they prepare for Sunday’s Carnegie Challenge Cup fourth-round tie at home to Engage Super League side Salford City Reds.

Player-boss Paul March confirmed that Hawks came through the 48-12 home Co-op Championship loss to Featherstone Rovers two days ago with no significant injury concerns.

March said: “We’re going into this cup game not expected to win, so we can go out and express ourselves and hopefully entertain.”

After trailing 32-0 at the break against Rovers, March felt Hawks “played some good stuff” in the second half.

He said: “The effort was there, we’ve just got to apply ourselves a bit better.

“We let a couple of soft tries in and we’ve got to learn from that.”
