Eaton sees lighter side of injury blows

Have your say

championship: Hunslet Hawks may be struggling but coach Barry Eaton is retaining his sense of humour ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Leigh Centurions.

Steve Lewis (shoulder) is their major injury doubt as they prepare to face a side that played Leeds Rhinos in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals last Friday.

Eaton said: “Normally we lose two or three blokes each week, so to only lose one is a real positive.

“Leigh are flying at the moment, with a good run in the league and the Challenge Cup, so it’s a tough challenge for us. But this is the division we want to play in, and we should be looking forward to games like this.”
