Hunslet Warriors from the Yorkshire League are coached by Dean Sampson and have our former player Caldon Bravo in their ranks.

Ovenden's run is amazing.

It's about time we had a home tie against an amateur team. Although I was at Thornhill the other week and they were celebrating the 10th anniversary of beating the Eagles. The video of the game was on the big screen in the clubhouse - I was shocked at how slow and ponderous the game seemed compared to what we see now at DVS. However the pitch was in a similar condition to how it was after the recent U2 concert.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

This isn't 100% confirmed btw, just what it says on forums, no official list of fixtures yet, sounds like the draw has been a farce again, rumour has it it had to be re-done because they left Wath Brow Hornets out!

Saw Thatto Heath beat Castleford Panthers 32-0 at Castleford on Saturday in the previous round, although to be fair, the Panthers did have on off day. Thatto are one of the better teams from the NCL, and although now in Division 1, they shouldn't be taken lightly, as indeed shouldn't any amateur teams. This is their cup final. :lol::lol:
