I wonder which ones will be rested on sunday, so they dont have to spend the day in cumbria. Be interesting to see if i'm right. The last team we beat under floodlight was against Whitehaven last season, at home (weds 15th Feb)when we won 34-18.
Your right, but it wasn't a league game. It was a cup game against a team a division below.
I am hoping it is now light enough not to use the floodlights, this might fix the jinx

From Championship website:
Wednesday May 29
Kingstone Press Championship
Hunslet Hawks v Sheffield Eagles (7.30pm)
Hunslet hawks coach Barry Eaton will give late fitness tests to Jimmy Watson (ankle) and Luke Helliwell (ribs) ahead of Wednesday’s Kingstone Press Championship match with Sheffield Eagles.
However, Eaton will definitely be without Danny Grimshaw, who has been ruled out for six to 10 weeks with an ankle problem.
Eaton said: “We seem to be getting every team that’s on a winning run and flying.
“Batley were in great form last week and Sheffield are also going well. It’s a good challenge for us.
“Sheffield have proved over the last month that they’re where they probably want to be, and they’re the team that everyone needs to challenge this year.”
Eagles coach Mark Aston has doubts over Misi Taulapapa (ankle) and Michael Knowles (dead leg).
Vinny Finigan and Nev Morrison are both pushing hard to be included in Sheffield’s squad.
