Hunslet RLFC will kick-off their 2018 League One season on the road as they take on Hemel Stags at Pennine Way.
The opening game will take place on Sunday, February 18 with a 2pm kick-off before Hunslet’s first home game at the South Leeds Stadium, which will be against Whitehaven. This is followed by a home tie against North Wales in round three, before a short trip to the Provident Stadium to face the Bradford Bulls in a mouth-watering clash.
Hunslet’s first meeting with newly formed West Wales Raiders will take place at the South Leeds Stadium on Sunday, May 27 and they finish the league campaign at Coventry Bears. Their Good Friday fixture will be against Keighley Cougars.
The League One play-off format has also been confirmed with two teams being promoted to the Championship at the end of the season. The league leaders will automatically be promoted with the below four teams in the league ladder competing in a play-off format.
Second will play fifth and third will play fourth with the winners of each match competing in a Grand Final to determine which team is promoted.
