North Wales Crusaders host Hunslet at Queensway Stadium on Sunday, February 23 in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup.

Below is everything you need to know ahead of the clash.


It will be the first time both clubs have been in action since their third round Challenge Cup ties a couple of weeks ago.

Crusaders beat amateur club Rochdale Mayfield 64-6, scoring seven tries in an impressive 16-minute spell in the second-half.

Hunslet, on the other hand, turned on the style after the break as they beat fellow League 1 outfit Coventry Bears 36-4.


Crusaders and Hunslet have faced one another on seven occasions in total.

North Wales have come out on top in one of those clashes, while the Yorkshire side have won each of the other six.

In the last head-to-head at the South Leeds Stadium last August, Hunslet ran out 42-18 winners.


Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray is more than aware of the threat Hunslet pose.


Murray has named his squad for the cup clash with Hunslet.


Entry to the cup tie is £12 for adults and £10 for concessions, with U16s going completely free of charge. Please note: cup fixtures aren’t included in season ticket packages.

The official matchday programme is priced at just £2 and will be on sale around Queensway Stadium before the game. Brad Billsborough is the cover star, talking about his time at Crusaders so far.
