After the game of two halves at Kingston Park and the determined and spirited comeback by the Dons having trailed 22-4 at half time, the first home league fixture beckons with the visit of Hunslet who were without a league fixture last weekend but scored a 'friendly' victory (36-18) against a young Bradford Bulls team.

Gary Thornton's squad at the South Leeds Stadium includes a number of former Dons including half back pairing Reece Dean and Danny Nicklas. Winger Gareth Potts and forwards Zac Braham, Mike Emmett, Michael Haley, Adam Robinson and Ryan Wright would also be making returns to the Keepmoat Stadium if selected.

The Dons had Connor Wynne and Danny Langtree on dual registration on Saturday but may be slightly more reliant on partners Hull FC next weekend having picked up a number of knocks, most notably an injury to stand off Jordan Howden.

Following the result in Newcastle and Workington Town's victory at Oldham the bookies have revised the League One regular season betting. The Dons are now 7/2 second favourites behind Workington (6/4) with Oldham out to 4/1 and Newcastle 9/2. Whitehaven are next best in Skybet's list at 5/1 with Sundays opponents Hunslet rated a 16/1 chance.

Last Season : Doncaster 16 Hunslet 35 (Sunday 20 May 2018)
Dons Tries: Sam Doherty, Ross Osborne, Kyle Kesik
Dons Conversions: Jack Miller 2

I am making no predictions regarding the Dons, not after Saturday's game.

No Hull Fc reserve fixture scheduled for the next two weeks .
Be interesting to see if he sticks with the squad he has subject to injuries.

We were already down two second row forwards (Brad England and Frankie Mariano) for the Newcastle game and may have lost another (Brad Foster) to injury on Saturday. Our stand off (Jordan Howden) also picked up an injury late on at Kingston Park so at the moment, they are certainly area's of concern. Connor Wynne also picked up a knock.

Looking forward to this. We can bolster with a couple more FC players. How serious is Hakim's injury? Be great to see him. Logan played FB for reserves I noticed. So. On reflection. Miloudi if fit, Cross to 6 if Howdens not available, Langtree again an Nzongou would be nice. Oh and Jez Litten. Still just 4 FC players. Entirely feasible. I'm perfectly happy with Connor Wynne if fit btw so I think we'll be ok.

I agree Rob. We can bolster our numbers with Hull players. Having a larger group to call upon in this way does help us to cover injuries, probably in a better way than if we had a bigger squad of our own.

I too am looking forward to Sunday and whatever the half-time score may be, I'm sure nobody will be taking anything for granted. :wink:

I expect that Jordan Cox will now come in to contention for this game.

The result of not using condoms ... Boyle and Cox.
OK ... some poetic license there.
