Hunslet Hawks have confirmed that they will be hosting Super League side Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in a pre-season fixture next month.

The clash at the South Leeds Stadium will be played Sunday, February 2 (3pm kick off), and will replace the cancelled Hunslet All Stars fixture.

Hawks’ director of rugby Darren Williams said: “It’s no secret that we have been looking for another pre-season fixture as our league campaign doesn’t commence until early March.

“It’s an attractive fixture for the club as Wakefield coach Richard Agar is looking to bring a strong side with several new faces in his line up as this is his last opportunity to look at some of their new recruits in action before Super League kicks off.

“With the current delay over work permits it’s likely that some of their recent overseas signings will be on show.”
